The Rot Within: Security and Corruption in Latin America
by Mark Ungar
Former Fellow Mark Ungar's article "The Rot Within: Security and Corruption in Latin America" appeared in the Winter 2013 issue of Social Research. In the article, Ungar examines the contradiction between a global movement towards democracy, which would be expected to decrease corruption, and the challenges posed by violence and insecurity, which can have the opposite effect. Ungar examines insecurity's role in corruption, including the ways in which corruption can create bonds between state and non-state security issues.
