Board Member John Prendergast Op-Ed: "Saving South Sudan From Kleptocracy"

This op-ed, by board member John Prendergast, originally appeared on The Daily Beast.


South Sudan’s belligerents have signed a peace deal, but it is far from certain that the brutal 20-month civil war is over. If the next steps the parties take are simply to restore the status quo that existed before the war’s eruption, the odds are wildly in favor of a return to deadly conflict.

UN: Corruption is Feeding and Sustaining Wildlife and Forest Crime

The heads of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) recently released a statement emphasizing the role of corruption in feeding and sustaining wildlife and forest crime. “For the criminals to succeed, customs officials must be bribed to look away; logging and hunting licenses forged; and poachers set free due to obstructed prosecutions,” the statement said. Corruption has facilitated the theft of countries’ natural wealth and has undermined efforts to eradicate poverty and spur economic development. Tackling corruption and bribery will, in turn, “deal a significant blow” to transnational criminal networks involved in the illicit wildlife trade.
