The Future of Anticorruption in U.S. Foreign Policy

March 14, 2017 – Present

Corruption is increasingly recognized as corrosive to U.S. foreign policy interests, from national security to commerce. This symposium will bring together current and former U.S. foreign policy leaders, legal experts, and innovative thinkers to discuss and debate the role of anticorruption in U.S. foreign policy at the start of a new administration. The symposium sessions will consider lessons learned in fighting corruption abroad, and strategize how best to address corruption in a systematic and effective manner going forward.
