Andrew Feinstein is Founding Director of Shadow World Investigations (formerly Corruption Watch), an NGO that undertakes path-breaking investigations into cases of grand corruption, corporate malfeasance and militarism, predominantly but not exclusively in the global arms trade. Andrew was a former African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament in South Africa for 7 years before resigning in protest at the ANC’s refusal to allow an independent and comprehensive inquiry into a multi-million dollar arms deal.

​Feinstein has written two books on the illicit global arms trade, The Shadow World and After the Party, which is a detailed account of his time spent within the ANC and the cover up involving the arms deal scandal. Feinstein was educated at King’s College Cambridge, the University of California at Berkley, and the University of Cape Town and also participated in the London School of Economics Distinguished Visitors Programme. He regularly appears on a variety of broadcast media including BBC and Al Jazeera and authored the lead article in the SIPRI Yearbook 2011.
