Innovations in the Fight against Corruption in Latin America

Beth Simone Noveck is director of The Governance Lab at NYU Tandon, and professor in the department of Technology, Culture and Society.  

Today is International Anti-Corruption Day, an annual commemoration of passage of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption fifteen years ago. In honor of the occasion, the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) has published an important, practical and prescriptive report with recommendations for every sector of society from government to individuals on innovative and effective approaches to combating corruption. The innovative recommendations about the use of new technologies … are drawn from an effort undertaken last year by the Governance Lab at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering to crowdsource such solutions and advice on how to implement them from a hundred global experts.
