Latin America has been facing corruption from different approaches and strategies: policy and institutional reforms - such as the Mexico and Chile cases -, social mobilization - such as the Guatemala, Honduras and Brasil cases -, judicial processes - such as the Panamá, El Salvador, Brasil and Guatemala cases - and new forms of international cooperation such as CICIG (Guatemala) and MACCIH (Honduras). Each case analyzed evidence that different approaches converge; simultaneously policy reforms, judicial processes, social mobilization and action of the new instruments of international cooperation are presented and at different levels, generating processes to combat corruption unprecedented in the history of Latin America.

However, the results of the fight against corruption are not guaranteed, therefore, it is appropriate to make a balance to evaluate the effectiveness of anti-corruption responses, identify their political and economic effects, and evaluate potential adjustments strategy to ensure its effectiveness.

We seek to make a critical assessment of the processes of fighting corruption that develop in Latin America, identifying the effectiveness of its mechanisms and instruments as well as improvement actions that can be driven from the movement of Transparency International. With this scope of work in mind, we expect to:

1. Identify and assess dynamics and results of the anti-corruption processes, mechanisms and instruments, currently being developed.

2. Identify actions to strengthen anti-corruption processes, structuring a common agenda of support from the movement of Transparency International.

Initially, representatives of the chapters in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Brazil and Chile will present abstracts of the processes, mechanisms and instruments of anticorruption being developed in their countries over the past two years, identifying its main features and innovations they are occurring. From that, a debate in which other chapters and participants may extend to other cases and perspectives will open.

In a second round of interventions, each representative will present a clear identification of the main results (probably in the process) and main challenges arising thereof and which must be taken into account for the action of the movement of Transparency International.

At the close of the event, the moderator will present a small integrated balance, including the identification of key accompanying measures identified.
