International Conference on fighting economic crime
The International Conference "Developing trends in combating corruption, money laundering and recovering criminal assets in Europe" will take place on 20-21 October 2015 in Prague.
The forum will debate the major trends, challenges and new international standards on anti-corruption, anti-money laundering and asset recovery. The event, one of the most important under the EEA and Norway Grants in 2015, is co-organised by the Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic, the Government of Norway and the Council of Europe. The discussions are structured along five themes: transparency and political funding, preventing and combating judicial corruption, whistleblower protection, key challenges in implementing the new anti-money laundering standards, and asset recovery. The conference will be attended by practitioners, experts, policymakers and other stakeholders, including civil society representatives, coming from Grants’ beneficiary states and Council of Europe’s member states.
