In October 2012, the World Bank appointed Mr. Moreno-Ocampo to lead an expert panel to examine an alleged corruption conspiracy related to a $3 billion project in Bangladesh.

Previously, Mr. Moreno-Ocampo played a crucial role during the transition to democracy in Argentina. In 1985, he was the deputy Prosecutor in the Junta trial in Argentina and later he led investigations against guerrilla leaders and Army officers involved in two military rebellions and dozens of cases of corruption involving high level public officers.

Mr. Moreno-Ocampo played a key role in establishing compliance systems in the Telecommunication, Energy, Gas and other privatized services in Argentina. As a private consultant, an active Board member of Transparency International and former president of its Latin America and Caribbean office, and an advisor of the World Bank Institute, he designed anticorruption strategies in more than 40 countries.

Mr. Moreno-Ocampo taught seminars in anticorruption strategies at Stanford (2002) and Harvard (2003) and is currently a Senior Fellow at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs at Yale University and a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at New York University.

In 2011, The Atlantic included him among the Brave Thinkers, which is a guide to the people risking their reputations, fortunes, and lives in pursuit of big ideas. In that same year, Foreign Policy designated him one of the 100 Top Global Thinkers, the magazine’s portrait of the world’s marketplace of ideas and the thinkers who make them.
