2020 Latin America Corruption Survey

Despite Latin America's anti-corruption progress over the last decade, including blockbuster investigations, high-powered politicians and business leaders behind bars, and improved laws in key jurisdictions, new survey data reveals corruption risk to be at an all-time high across the region. 

The 2020 Latin America Corruption Survey, released July 8, 2020, by Miller & Chevalier Chartered and 14 partner firms, tracks perspectives on anti-corruption issues in the region since 2008. This year, 54 percent of survey respondents said corruption is a significant obstacle to doing business – up 10 percent since 2012 – while only 45 percent of respondents believe offenders are likely to be prosecuted, down from 66 percent in 2008.
