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 path breaking 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 on July 19, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., 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.
The event will take place at the Atlantic Council Headquarters, at 1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor. A light lunch will be served at 12:00 p.m. and the discussion starts promptly at 12:30 p.m. (EDT).
