Institute Announces Two New Collaborative Research Projects
The Georgetown Americas Institute is pleased to announce two new collaborative research projects: "Understanding and Addressing Corruption in Latin America and the Caribbean" and "Latin America in the Global Economy."
Understanding and Addressing Corruption in Latin America
Drawing on the substantial expertise located across Georgetown University’s 10 schools, the institute will coordinate a research agenda within the university that seeks to obtain a clear understanding of the nature and magnitude of corruption in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina and to make specific and realistic recommendations in each of these areas: criminal enforcement, the democratic process and freedom of expression, financial management and economic regulation, institutional reform, and the role of the private sector.
Latin America in the Global Economy
This multiyear initiative will advance relevant research and promote dialogue of the Georgetown community with governments, the private sector, academia, and civil society on the most critical challenges facing the participation and insertion of Latin America and the Caribbean in a newly emerging global economic trade architecture, characterized by deep structural changes.
