The Press and Society Institute (IPYS) and Transparency International (TI) are accepting nominations for the 2010-2011 Latin American Investigative Journalism Award given to investigative journalists from online, print and broadcast media covering public interest issues in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Launched in 2002, the award is open to individuals and groups for reports published in 2010 that contribute to greater transparency in the public sector, business sector, media, or social spending.


Winners are awarded a first prize of US$15,000, a second prize of US$10,000 and third prize of $5,000. Both the winners and honourable mentions will be announced at the Latin American Conference for Investigative Journalism (COLPIN) in Guayaquil, Ecuador in September.

The jury consists of prominent investigative journalists from the region: Marcelo Beraba (Estado de Sao Paulo, Brazil), Gustavo Gorriti (IDL reporteros, Peru), Gerardo Reyes (Miami Herald, USA) and Tina Rosenberg (The New York Times, USA).

Last year’s first prize was awarded to Colombian journalists, Ricardo Calderón, Alejandro Santos, Alfonso Cuélla, Luz María Sierra and Carlos Eduardo Huertas for their report in Semana on illegal wire tapping by a Columbian government department. As a result of the report, the attorney general and public prosecutor opened investigations.

For more information about the awards, sponsored by the Open Society Institute and the Ford Foundation, please visit IPYS.
Submissions will be accepted until 14 May 2011.

Next week governments can take a step to close down secrecy jurisdictions. Will they?

National financial regulators attending the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) plenary in Paris 16 – 21 February have the opportunity to significantly reduce money laundering, corruption and terror financing. They must not squander the opportunity.

Why don’t the victims of bribery share in the record-breaking Airbus settlement?

Last Friday, French, UK and US authorities announced that Airbus would pay record penalties for foreign bribery. Notably absent in the agreements are any plans to share the penalty payment with the countries where the company was paying bribes.

Nadie es perfecto

Los países con las puntuaciones más altas en el IPC, como Dinamarca, Suiza e Islandia, no son inmunes a la corrupción. Si bien el IPC muestra que los sectores públicos en estos países están entre los menos corruptos del mundo, la corrupción existe, especialmente en casos de lavado de dinero y otras formas de corrupción en el sector privado.

Переполох на верху

Страны с самым высоким рейтингом по ИВК, такие как Дания, Швейцария и Исландия, не защищены от коррупции. Хотя ИВК показывает, что государственный сектор в этих странах является одним из самых чистых в мире, коррупция все еще существует, особенно в случаях отмывания денег и другой коррупции в частном секторе.

Problèmes au sommet

Les pays les mieux classés sur l’IPC comme le Danemark, la Suisse et l’Islande ne sont pas à l’abri de la corruption. Bien que l’IPC montre que les secteurs publics de ces pays sont parmi les moins corrompus au monde, la corruption existe toujours, en particulier dans les cas de blanchiment d’argent et d’autres formes de corruption du secteur privé.

Индекс восприятия коррупции 2019

Индекс восприятия коррупции 2019 года выявил, что огромное число стран практически не показывает улучшения в борьбе с коррупцией. Наш анализ также показывает, что сокращение больших денег в политике и содействие инклюзивному принятию политических решений необходимы для сдерживания коррупции.
