SELEC is hosting the 19th Edition of the Summer School for Junior Anti-corruption Practitioners from South-East Europe organized by Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative Secretariat. This year’s edition is titled Unveiling Corruption: Introduction to Asset Recovery and Financial Investigation Techniques, and is taking place in Bucharest, Romania, from 11 to 14 June 2024.

This Summer School aims to equip junior prosecutors, anti-corruption practitioners, and financial investigators from law enforcement agencies from Southeast Europe with the necessary knowledge and expertise in asset recovery. The programme’s main objectives are to provide an overview of the current financial investigation and asset recovery landscape taking into account international best practices in respect of the investigation and prosecution of corruption-related offenses, current money laundering typologies, and international best investigative practice.

Ms. Desislava Gotskova, Head of RAI Secretariat, and Mr. Oguz Serkant Akin, Director General of SELEC, addressed opening remarks, welcoming the participants at the SELEC Training Center, the venue of the event.

Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative Summer School for Junior Anti-Corruption Practitioners from Southeast Europe was originally initiated in 2005 as a way to build and strengthen capacities in the region and to provide a platform for young practitioners to learn new practices and to exchange experiences.

RAI has been recently granted the status of Observer to SELEC.
