Description: 

Throughout the past decade, Latin American has made significant progress in tackling corruption, as evidenced by the wave of legal actions in the region against the perpetrators of several corruption schemes, such as Operation Carwash and the Notebook Scandal. Even the U.S. government has taken notice by bringing Foreign Corrupt Practices Act cases against companies in Latin America resulting in billions of dollars in fines.

COVID-19 has hit Latin America at a time that the region-wide anti-corruption wave of the 2010s has lost steam and, in some countries, is receding.  It is thus more critical than ever to understand the challenges ahead for fighting corruption in the region so that they can be confronted. To that end, we invite you to join us for a guided conversation featuring Laura Alonso, Argentina’s Secretary of Justice for Public Ethics, Transparency and the Fight Against Corruption, and Sergio Moro, former Minister of Justice of Brazil, who will share their perspective on lessons learned during the fight against corruption in the 2010s and the future of anti-corruption efforts in Latin America during the 2020s.
