The national security threat of authoritarian corruption: How dictators, terrorists, and criminals abuse free markets – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise4th July 2019
Dictators require more than good stories and parades to earn the loyalty of elites and subdue their people. Illicit economic activity crosses sovereign borders, spreads corruption, and funds further illegal activities within the United States and other democracies at unprecedented levels. Combating authoritarianism and addressing the dark networks that facilitate its corrupt activities are the unavoidable strategic challenges to global security. How can US policymakers respond to the growing national security threat posed by authoritarian corruption without sacrificing democratic values?
Please join AEI for the release of Jeane Kirkpatrick Fellow Clay R. Fuller’s latest report, “Dismantling the Authoritarian-Corruption Nexus,” and a discussion of the national security threat posed by authoritarian corruption.
Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
