New Paths for the Anti-Corruption Battle in Brazil: from Punitivism to Transparency

Against corruption, in favor of rights

How can we redirect the battle against corruption so that it strengthens movements in favor of democracy, transparency and participation in public policies, as to reduce inequalities of access to power?

In practice: distributing power and strengthening different voices

To achieve this goal, the Anti-Corruption Lab aims to:

  • Broaden the voices impacted by corruption:

  • Engage for rights (transparency and participation) :
  • Strengthen the ecosystem of organizations:
Showing the process of message testing
  • Dialogue with new audiences:

Recovering the essence of the movement

At the end of the day, what we want is to recover the essence of the anti-corruption battle: the dream that people can have their rights guaranteed, through a democratic and egalitarian state where all voices are heard and represented. Though this work is specific to anti-corruption in Brazil, it brings many lessons to be shared with other regions plagued with similar corruption issues that bring about systemic inequities. This desire burns in our Lab and with it we will continue in this battle.
