This year’s online Summer School of the Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative (RAI) held on 5-15 October, maintained its tradition of partnering with national authorities from the RAI Member States and international organisations.

This edition supported by the Judicial Academy of Croatia, the UNODC – Global Judicial Integrity Network and the Central European Initiative (CEI) witnessed opening remarks by Vladan Joksimovic, Head of RAI Secretariat; Andrea Posavec Franic, Director of the Judicial Academy of Croatia, and Roberta Solis, Team Leader of the Judicial Integrity Component, UNODC – Secretariat of the Global Judicial Integrity Network.

Twenty six participants from the judiciaries and anti-corruption agencies from CEI Member States and others attended four webinars during a two-week period focused on good practices, approaches and outcomes, including international standards in the field of prevention and the fight against corruption.

The webinars targeted subjects as corruption preventive tools and asset disclosure; integrity,conflict of interest and whistleblowing protection in the SEE region; processing corruption cases and asset recovery; disclosure of conflict of interest and financial disclosure for judges and prosecutors.

The RAI Summer School for Junior Anti-Corruption Professionals was originally initiated in 2005 by the Rumanian Minister of Justice as a way to build relationships between AC civil servants of SEE and to provide a platform to learn new practices and exchange experiences. The event was thereafter organised every year. This year’s CEI support is part of the MoU with the RAI signed in November 2019 in Rome.
