Coalition Member The Sentry shared their latest briefing on “Constructing Corruption Identifying the Enablers Helping Build Violent Kleptocracies”.

Summary

Coalition Member The Sentry shared their latest briefing on “Constructing Corruption Identifying the Enablers Helping Build Violent Kleptocracies”. The report spotlights 16 case studies to examine the profiles and negative impact of enablers, exposing their links to illicit financial flows and associated conflict and human rights abuses. Targeting enablers through financial tools of pressure and other policy actions can alter enablers’ cost-benefit calculations and remove them as essential allies in the construction and maintenance of violent kleptocracies.

 

The report presents commonalities and characteristics of enablers revealed through previous reporting from The Sentry, such as their ability to target countries with vast unexploited wealth, weak government structures, underlying corrupt practices, and conflict.
