ASSESSING LATIN AMERICA’S ABILITY TO DETECT, PUNISH AND PREVENT CORRUPTION

This report from Control Risks and the Americas Society and the Council of the Americas published the fourth edition of the Capacity to Combat Corruption (CCC) Index. First launched in 2019, the Index assesses Latin American countries’ ability to detect, punish and prevent corruption.  It evaluates and ranks countries based on how effectively they can combat corruption.  Countries with a higher score are deemed more likely to see corrupt actors prosecuted and punished.  Continued impunity is more likely in countries at the lower end of the scale.  The Index looks at 14 key variables, including the independence of judicial institutions, the strength of investigative journalism, and the level of resources available for combating white collar crime.  The country with the highest score in the 2022 CCC Index is Uruguay, Panama is at the mid-point (scoring 4.96 out of 10) and Venezuela has the lowest score (1.93).
