As part of the 2015–2016 Fellows’ Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Claudia Escobar RI ’16 explores how corruption is directly linked to the lack of judicial independence. Using her experience in Guatemala as an example, Escobar sheds light on how judges in the higher courts are appointed without respecting international principles or judicial independence, which enables political entities and other powerful groups to control the justice system, thus promoting impunity and corruption.
Claudia Escobar is the 2015–2016 Robert G. James Scholar at Risk Fellow, part of Harvard’s Scholar at Risk program.
