Overview

The fight against corruption in Latin America suffered a new wave of setbacks over the past year during the COVID-19 pandemic. Against this backdrop, AS/COA and Control Risks are launching the third edition of the Capacity to Combat Corruption (CCC) Index, assessing 15 Latin American countries’ ability to detect, punish, and prevent corruption. Join us in a conversation about the Index's findings, with a focus on Central America, at a time when efforts to combat corruption are more needed than ever before. Read the 2021 CCC report here.
