This paper considers the report of the 2009 UK government-appointed Commission of Inquiry into corruption in the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), and draws comparisons with a similar Commission of Inquiry undertaken in 1986. The paper evaluates the characteristics of TCI society and the UK’s system of oversight of the territory, and whether they help to explain the problems that have blighted the territory in recent decades. The paper suggests that significant and positive reform is being undertaken, but it will still require deep-seated changes in the TCI’s political culture, as well as greater engagement on the part of the UK to finally banish the cloud hanging over the territory.
