Problems of corruption in Nigeria are well-known and efforts to address this issue have had mixed success. The Open Society Foundations host a discussion on the successes and challenges of anticorruption initiatives from both Nigerian and American perspectives.
Panelists will offer a brief historical perspective on these efforts, including Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the U.S. Anti-Kleptocracy Initiative, and will discuss how to improve future efforts.
