Weekly InSight: Outlook for Anti-Graft Initiatives in Honduras and Guatemala

ELITES AND CRIME / 2 FEB 2018 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN

In our February 1 Facebook Live session, InSight Crime Co-Director Steven Dudley and Managing Editor Josefina Salomón addressed the current status and outlook of anti-corruption initiatives taking place in Honduras and Guatemala.

During the interview, Dudley provided details of some of the obstacles that anti-corruption initiatives are currently facing in both countries, muddying the short-term outlook for these efforts. He also talked about how the coming appointment of new attorneys general in both countries will be critical to determining how these initiatives proceed.

In addition, both Salomón and Dudley discussed the role of the United States, and the vague rhetoric emanating from Washington regarding US support for the ongoing anti-corruption initiatives in both countries.
