The subjects that are taught in the summer school, are of remarkable interest, as they specialise in top issues in the field of financial crime, corruption and money laundering. At the same time, these are topics that have undergone significant developments in recent years. These developments have resulted from the adoption of acts at European Union level (new EU Financial Interest Fraud Directive, new European Public Prosecutor’s Office Regulation, 5th and 6th Anti-Money Laundering Directive), but also from the emergence of new ways and means of committing crimes in the fields of financial crime, corruption and money laundering (bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, offshore companies etc.). The enhancement of the knowledge of students (undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral) and young scientists (young professionals, doctoral and postdoctoral researchers) in the field of legal science and other scientific fields related to these developments serves the promotion of lifelong learning.
The Director of the Programme is Maria Kaiafa-Gbandi, Professor of Law School, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Director of the Research Institute for Transparency, Corruption and Financial Crime, Founding Member of the European Criminal Policy Initiative (ECPI), Nominated Member of the Expert Group of the EU Commission on European Criminal Policy (since 2015).
