Combatting corruption in Latin America


Almost five years into Latin America’s anti-corruption push, the region’s politics, business environment and civil society have been deeply transformed. The issue of corruption shaped elections last year in the two largest Latin American economies — Mexico and Brazil — and it still dominates the political conversation almost everywhere in the region.

Corruption has been a critical hurdle for Latin American countries for a long time, denting growth, weakening democracy and governance, and undermining the human rights of millions of citizens. But it’s only recently that major anti-corruption investigations have begun removing the veil of impunity for political and business elites.
