ROLC Holds Virtual Anti-Corruption Workshop for Foreign Service Officers in Latin America





From December 1-3, 2020, the Rule of Law Collaborative (ROLC) held a virtual anti-corruption workshop for an audience of U.S. foreign service officers working in Latin America, as part of the JUSTRAC+ program. Over the course of the three days, ROLC staff used a mix of approaches to give participants a comprehensive understanding of the different dimensions of corruption, potential responses to corruption, and considerations when incorporating anti-corruption strategies into programs.

Participants took part in a mix of self-paced online learning modules, interactive presentations from ROLC staff, and practical exercises through which they designed anti-corruption programming for the countries in which they work. At the end of the three days, participants had the opportunity to workshop their program ideas with colleagues and ROLC staff.

This workshop represents ROLC’s ongoing commitment to innovative, practical learning in an environment of increasing online instruction. ROLC looks forward to similar, future opportunities to interact with practitioners working on complex rule of law challenges and to help them refine their programmatic approaches.
