Yesterday, I had the pleasure of hosting the Civil Society, Markets, and Democracy program’s symposium on “The Future of Anticorruption in U.S. Foreign Policy.” We started the day off with Senator Ben Cardin, who discussed his contributions to anticorruption legislation, including the Global Magnitsky Act and the proposed Combating Global Corruption Act. Our second session focused on corruption and commerce; with speakers discussing the costs and benefits of policing international markets. During the third and final session, speakers examined the links between corruption and national security, evaluating where U.S. policies have succeeded, and where they have fallen short.
