Rule of Law Symposium: the anti-corruption revolution in Latin America
Friday 13 October (0930 - 1045)
Rule of Law Forum
Recent months have seen remarkable developments across Latin America in the fight against official corruption, including the sprawling Lava Jato ("Car Wash") case in Brazil, which by many measures has already become the largest anti-corruption case in history. Elsewhere in Latin America, anti-corruption initiatives led by prosecutors, civil society activists, and multi-national corporations have begun to transform the anti-corruption environment throughout the region, with high-level investigations leading to resignations of heads of state, prosecutions of numerous public officials and corporations, and new levels of attention by corporations to anti-corruption compliance. Hear the perspectives and insights on these historic developments directly from prosecutors, civil society activists, and corporate compliance professionals who have experienced this "revolution" first-hand.
