Summer Academy Fraud and Corruption in the Public Sector

The European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law is organising the annual Summer Academy "Fraud and Corruption in the Public Sector" from 24th to 28th August 2015 in Berlin.

Fraud and corruption in the public sector heavily harm the economy, lower investment levels and reduce public finances. Damages done to public institutions and their budgets can be enormous ranging from financial loss, reduction of organizational performance, reputation, credibility and public confidence.

At the Summer Academy “Fraud and Corruption in the Public Sector” participants will learn about the entire cycle from effective risk management, preventative measures and detection methods to concrete actions to be taken in a confirmed case of fraud or corruption. They will have the one-in-a-year chance to exchange experiences and to get answers of their questions from top international anti-fraud and anti-corruption experts.

Preventing fraud and corruption is everyone's responsibility.
This Summer Academy is tailored to the needs of anti-fraud and anti-corruption officers, internal and external auditors, compliance officers, procurement officers, executive managers, judicial and police officers working on economic crime, customs agents and other members of staff responsible for fighting fraud and corruption or working in areas with high risk of fraud and corruption from the public sector or from consultancies managing projects with or for the public sector.
