"The liberation of Mosul and the inevitable, approaching liberation of Raqqa in Syria will not be the end of the Islamic State and its evil ideology. But they crush the group’s pretense to having an actual “state” based upon it. As its surviving leaders scurry to the corners of the desert, no longer can they claim to head a winning movement. Their defeat diminishes the inspiration for violent extremists, or simply lost souls on social media, to attack Americans and our friends. This is a necessary step forward in combating terrorism. Americans are safer for it."
The event will be held on Monday, June 26 at 6:00 p.m. at the House of the Academy in Cambridge, MA. You are also invited to join us for the reception, which will begin at 5:00.
Join us as our speakers discuss their work on anti-corruption:
Sergio Fernando Moro as the leading anti-corruption judge amid Brazil's Lava Jato scandal;
Zephyr Teachout on her legal advocacy pertaining to the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution;
and Mark L. Wolf on his proposal for an International Anti-Corruption Court.
The discussion will be moderated by Robert I. Rotberg, Founding Director of the Harvard Kennedy School Program on Intrastate Conflict and President Emeritus of the World Peace Foundation.
While the event is free to attend and open to the public, we do ask all participants to register online beforehand.
