This guide to managing risks that affect public integrity was developed by Peru’s Secretariat for Public Integrity of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, with technical assistance from the Swiss-funded Subnational Public Finance Management Programme implemented by the Basel Institute on Governance.

The guide seeks to help Peru’s public institutions reduce the risk of corruption and other misconduct, especially in critical areas such as service provision, public procurement and human resources.

Peru’s first National Convention of Prosecutors Specialised in Extinción de Dominio brought together 80 prosecutors, lawyers, police officers and other justice practitioners to share experiences on the application of Peru’s extinción de dominio law.

Extinción de dominio is a form of non-conviction based forfeiture (NBCF) law common in Latin America. It allows the State to confiscate illicit assets where a criminal conviction is not possible in relation to the specific crime generating those assets.
