Effectiveness of International Anticorruption Conventions on Domestic Policy Changes in Latin America
Over the last five years, the Program has mainly worked to consolidate civil society organizations’ position in the Inter-American System as an interlocutor able to support the implementation of the IACC and participate in its peer review mechanism. More recently, the Program has supported selected national-level advocacy activities that could have greater impact at the national level.
TI-LAC’s Conventions’ Program has received funding from the Open Society Foundations’ Latin America Program since 2004. In the last five years, it has invested approximately $686,000. The notion underlying our support has been that international anticorruption conventions and peer review mechanisms are important elements of a transnational anticorruption strategy that can empower national-level accountability constituencies/civil society groups and, in so doing, activate anticorruption policies in domestic systems. Anticorruption institutions and advocacy, in turn, are concrete ways to promote open society values.
