The “notebooks” scandal in Argentina has shined a light on widespread corruption among the country’s political and economic elites. It has also brought unflattering scrutiny to Argentina’s criminal justice system, including its federal judiciary. The fallout has shaken confidence, at home and among foreign investors, in the rule of law in Argentina. But well before the latest bribery scandal, President Mauricio Macri had launched an ambitious campaign to strengthen Argentina’s criminal justice system, aiming for greater efficiency, transparency and credibility. The cornerstone of that effort is a wholesale modernization of Argentina’s penal code, led by a federal judge, Mariano Borinsky, whose recommendations are shaping these historic reforms. The panel will be co-sponsored by the Argentina Project; the Inter-American Dialogue; and The Integrity Forum, an initiative of Exiger.
