Summer Academy: Fraud and Corruption in the Public Sector, August 26th – 30th 2013, Berlin
The European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law is delighted to announce the new Summer Academy “Fraud and Corruption in the Public Sector”, which will take place from August 26th to August 30th 2013 in Berlin.
Fraud and corruption in the public sector heavily harm the economy, lower investment levels and reduce public finances. Anti-fraud and anti-corruption strategies are often not effective enough and damages done to public institutions and their budgets can be enormous ranging from financial loss, reduction of organisational performance, reputation, credibility and public confidence.
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.
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 European anti-fraud and anti-corruption experts.
