Washington, D.C. Financial Crime Prevention Professionals, Join Us for: Lessons Learned From Recent Latin American Corruption Cases
Recent scandals in Latin America provide lessons for business and government on methods and modes used by criminals and terrorists to raise, move, and hide the profits of their bad acts. This includes widespread corruption, as is explored in “Following the Money Trail” to Combat Terrorism, Crime, and Corruption in the Americas, a recent report by NDU Professor Celina B. Realuyo for the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Professor Realuyo will discuss these cases, followed by a panel of experts who will offer practical advice for financial institutions, agencies, and those that do business in the region. We appreciate the collaboration from the following organizations: Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the American Bar Association's Section of International Law, and Reed Smith, LLP.
