Overview

Follow the discussion on Twitter: #AntiCorruptionCOA

All major anti-corruption investigations in Latin America in recent years share a common feature: they have relied heavily on financial intelligence and, more broadly, anti-money laundering (AML) tools. Several factors are driving regional progress in AML, including new technologies, stronger government agencies, and increased international collaboration. But new challenges and risks—from cryptocurrencies to the politicization of AML agencies—are also testing Latin America’s ability to detect, crack down and prevent financial crimes.

What are the main trends in AML in Latin America? How will they affect governments, businesses, and citizens? What can we learn from the use of financial intelligence in recent investigations?

This event is part of AS/COA’s Anti-Corruption Working Group.

This event will be in English and Spanish. Translation will be available.
