In October, Brazilians will elect their next president, Congressional representatives, and governors as part of a consequential year for Brazilian democracy. Among other priorities, corruption will again be a top campaign issue.

Sergio Moro, as judge, led the Car Wash Operation, unveiling a net of corruption at the highest levels of government. Most recently, he served as Brazil’s Minister of Justice. Last week, he switched political parties, ending his presidential aspirations as a candidate for the Podemos party.

What can Brazil learn from its own fight against corruption in recent years? What is the role of the Judiciary in further strengthening Brazil’s democratic institutions and rule of law?  What should be the key areas of cooperation between the United Sates and Brazil under a strengthened partnership?

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center for a public conversation transmitted live from our studios in Washington, DC on Friday, April 8, 2022, from 8:30 to 9:15 a.m. ET. Sergio Moro will discuss Brazil’s fight against corruption, the upcoming elections, and his vision for Brazil in the years ahead.

This event will be conducted in English.
