A conversation with Suelma Rosa, Vice-president, Institute for Government Relations (IRELGOV), Brazil

Although many people associate the current corruption debate in Brazil with specific political parties or economic sectors, it is historically the basis of the entire Brazilian political system, according to Rosa. "Like most developing countries, Brazil had no strong institutions in the past that could prevent corruption. As Brazil has strengthened its institutions over the years, so has its ability to investigate and promote justice."
