In this article, Alejandra Montenegro Almonte, Gregory Bates, and Chervonne Colón Stevenson discuss the short- and long-term impact of recent anti-corruption efforts in Central America, focusing on Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. "The recent efforts made by Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Honduras demonstrate a region taking measured steps to define a path forward for effective anti-corruption enforcement," the authors wrote. "[T]here is reason to believe that anti-corruption reform in these countries will become more than just empty campaign promises and that new laws and enforcement policies will emerge and take root."
