Description:
Public sector corruption generally results from the interactions of, on the one hand, private sector actors seeking some benefit from the government and, on the other hand, government officials who are seeking financial or other benefits from the private sector. Historically, the onus of fighting corruption in the public sector has fallen on prosecutors using the penal code. Operation Carwash is a noteworthy example of how prosecutors and the penal code can be used to combat corruption.  Brazil has had much recent experience in the fight against corruption.  This panel aims to discuss some of the lessons from Brazil’s efforts to eradicate public sector corruption. In particular, the panel will discuss whether there is a role for the private sector in the fight against corruption and what, if anything, the private sector can do to help in the struggle. Panelists will talk about the role of compliance programs, civil litigation and other tools at the disposal of private sector actors to resist the pressure from errant government actors for illicit payments.
