Sextortion - the abuse of power to obtain a sexual benefit - is a pervasive and underreported form of international corruption. From the highest government officials to public sector supervisors to teachers, those in power exploit the most vulnerable in developed and developing countries.
Join ASIL Academic Partner American University Washington College of Law's U.S. and International Anti-Corruption Law Summer Program for a discussion of how sextortion arises, application of the evolving global anti-corruption legal framework to tackle it, and examples of successful resistance to it.
