“Are Countries Making Progress in Fighting Corruption?”
Latin America Advisor
02.08.10James Tillen discusses whether countries in Latin America are making progress in reducing government corruption. Tillen says, "The allegations against [former Guatemalan President] Portillo demonstrate both progress and shortcomings in the region's fight against corruption. On the one hand, the region, through the Organization of American States, was the first in the world to adopt an anticorruption convention. Nevertheless, corruption continues to plague the region. The slow progress is primarily due to weak local enforcement.
