Corruption is increasingly a global concern, and Brazil is no stranger to the problem: the biggest economy in Latin America is also host to the biggest graft scandal in modern history. But amid political crisis and economic turmoil, Brazil has also produced results. It strengthened its justice system and revamped its cooperation with the United States. The result? Powerful businessmen and politicians behind bars and a pathbreaking international fight against impunity.
How did Brazil do it? What are the lessons from the Brazil-US cooperation that can be applied to other anti-corruption efforts? And is Brazil closer to finding a way out of the current cycle of crisis and instability?
Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, the Inter-American Dialogue, and Brazilian news service Jota for a candid discussion on the Brazilian experience and ways to improve international cooperation against corruption. During the event, Jota will present the results of an original Congressional survey on current political support for President Michel Temer and for anti-corruption efforts.
Registration is required. A light lunch will be served.
