Conference “Mapping Corruption Schemes Involving EU Funds”

Centre for Legal Resources announces the conference “Mapping Corruption Schemes Involving EU Funds” on 26th – 27th April 2018, Intercontinental Hotel. The conference has over 20 speakers from 4 E.U. Member States (Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Hungary) and 3 E.U. Candidate Countries (Albania, Macedonia and Serbia).

The conference aims to create networks and structural platforms between Member States and candidate countries in order to facilitate the exchange of information, experience and best practices among professionals involved in protecting EU’s financial interests. Corruption is a salient issue undermining EU’s financial interests. The OLAF 2016 report highlights that “there is one other common thread running through OLAF’s investigations in general, and the public procurement ones in particular, that would be the existence and use of corruption”. Mr. Giovanni Kessler, Director-General of OLAF pointed out that “corruption is still an almost universal aspect found in our cases”.

The conference is supported by the European Union Programme Hercule III (2014-2020).
