2024 Latin America Corruption Survey

Corruption remains pervasive throughout Latin America despite sustained efforts to criminalize, investigate, and prosecute misconduct, according to new survey data. In fact, corporate compliance – not enforcement – is the key driver for addressing these endemic issues. 

The 2024 Latin America Corruption Survey, released April 2, 2024, by Miller & Chevalier Chartered and 14 collaborating law firms in Latin America, measures perspectives on how corruption impacts companies' ability to do business in the region. The report, which builds on previous surveys dating back to 2008, reveals that nearly half of all respondents view corruption as a significant obstacle to doing business – and less than a third say the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) or other anti-corruption laws significantly mitigate corruption risk.
