The activities of the Valencian Antifraud Agency in the universities of the Valencian Community are being more and more often. In the 2022-2023 academic year, the Faculty of Law of the University of Valencia has included the university Docufòrum activity in collaboration with the AVAF in the Center Innovation Project (PIC).
The #DocufòrumAVAF is an activity aimed at promoting the social culture of civic ethics, public integrity, fraud prevention and rejection of corruption among students of all University degrees.
On this occasion, a #DocufòrumAVAF was held at the Faculty of Law, on Thursday, November 17, 2022, with the participation of 53 students from the Administrative Law II subject of the Law Degree, with the collaboration of the professor Reyes Marzal. Anselm Bodoque was responsible for the AVAF for energizing the session with the students.
After watching the documentaries «Corruption: Harmful organism» and «Conflicts of interest and public integrity», the students ask questions, focused on the origin and causes of corruption, its effect and costs, the perception of corruption in our society and with respect to other countries around us, what to do in cases of corruption.
Subsequently, the AVAF representative discusses with the students the issues raised in their questions and others also referred to on public ethics and integrity, as well as on prevention and civic training policies or on the functions and work carried out by the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency.
The students especially insisted on the consequences of corruption in the institutions and in our society, the non-existence of a State Agency, the crimes of corruption. On the other hand, they delved into the different types of conflicts of interest, and how to proceed before them so that neither irregularities nor crimes occur.
The activity has been organized in collaboration with the University of Valencia, which we thank for its interest and willingness to help create a culture of public integrity and rejection of fraud and corruption.
