Corruption and Government Responses to COVID-19 in Latin America

5.20.2020, 10:00AM

Please join the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and the International Republican Institute (IRI) for a discussion on how corruption will affect government responses to COVID-19 in Latin America. Panelists from Argentina, Mexico, and Guatemala will discuss how the current emergency responses to COVID-19 are vulnerable to corruption and are generating new opportunities for fraud. As many governments have put extensive emergency measures in place such as restrictions on trade and civil society and the increased militarization of police forces, diminishing access to information has also presented another challenge to their respective responses to this crisis. The discussion will include ample time for audience participation, so please come prepared to ask questions.
