Date & Time

Overview

Corruption is a scourge eroding democracies around the world. It has hampered global efforts to tackle COVID-19. Even as the U.S. has pushed anti-corruption reforms abroad, it has lagged at home. President Biden has declared the fight against corruption to be an issue of national security. Bipartisan congressional majorities have passed new rules on beneficial ownership disclosure and reporting requirements on U.S. actions against those who seek to undermine democratic governance in the United States and its allies through kleptocracy and corruption.

For a discussion of these issues and the state of corruption across the Atlantic and around the world, join us on the day Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI)  is released. The Index scores and ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption and is the most widely used indicator of corruption worldwide.

Global Europe Program

The Global Europe Program addresses vital issues affecting the European continent, U.S.-European relations, and Europe’s ties with the rest of the world. We investigate European approaches to critical global issues: digital transformation, climate, migration, global governance. We also examine Europe’s relations with Russia and Eurasia, China and the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Our program activities cover a wide range of topics, from the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE to European energy security, trade disputes, challenges to democracy, and counter-terrorism. The Global Europe Program’s staff, scholars-in-residence, and Global Fellows participate in seminars, policy study groups, and international conferences to provide analytical recommendations to policy makers and the media.  Read more
