Numerous colleagues have generously offered ideas and suggestions that enriched this book.

Fernando Filgueiras spearheaded the two-day conference "Rethinking Anticorruption Efforts in Brazil" that brought together a select group of public servants, anticorruption practitioners, and academics at the Escola Nacional de Administração Pública in Brasília. Sandra Botero, Daniel Brinks, and Ezequiel González-Ocantos held a collegial seminar "Politics and Law in Latin America" at the Universidad del Rosário, which got us thinking about the politics of judicial policy entrepreneurship. Maria Popova, Manuel Balán, and Juan Wang welcomed the presentation of our reflections on Lava Jato at the McGill University workshop "Politics of Corruption Prosecutions," which was also the source of a number of comparative insights developed in the pages ahead.
