The Valencian Antifraud Agency debates on corruption in the classrooms of the Faculty of Social and Legal Sciences of the Miguel Hernández University of Elche


In the first quarter of this academic year, two docufòrum have been held at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche, in collaboration with the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency (AVAF). The activities have been carried out on December 3 and 16, 2021, both with second and fourth year students of the Degree in Journalism.

The AVAF develops training activities to offer knowledge and civic awareness, especially to future professionals, and to promote a culture of prevention and fight against all conduct that encourages corruption.

On Friday, December 3, a new activity took place at the Faculty of Social and Legal Sciences of the Miguel Hernández University, with fourth-year students of the Degree in Journalism, with the attendance of 23 students and the participation of the professor of Ethics and Professional Deontology and Political Communication.

After viewing the documentary “Corruption: Harmful Organism”, the students lead the training experience with their questions, focused on the origin and causes of corruption, its effect and costs, the perception of corruption in our society and respect to other neighboring countries, what to do in cases of corruption. In the same debate, he takes the opportunity to talk about ethics and integrity, as well as prevention and civic training. And the functions and work of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, especially the importance of the media as a factor that modulates the perception of corruption, as well as the information on the different cases.

The debate with the students allows students to reflect on ethical limits and micro-corruption, which every professional encounters throughout their lives.

These activities are organized in collaboration with the Miguel Hernández de Elche University, which we thank for its interest and willingness to help create a culture of public integrity and rejection of fraud and corruption.

If you are a university, Secondary or Baccalaureate teacher and you are interested in the training activity “Docufòrum: Corruption, harmful organism” being carried out in your subject, do not hesitate to contact the Training Service of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency through from

Anti-fraud plans in the key of public integrity. The contribution of the AVAF in the conference on anti-fraud plans of the UJI of Castellón


On December 3, the head of the Prevention Service of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, Irene Bravo, participated in the Conference “Anti-fraud plans in the management of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan”.

Training is one of the fundamental components of the strategy to prevent corruption and improve integrity in the public sector and among citizens. In this framework, the Agency participates and collaborates in training actions to offer knowledge and sensitize personnel at the service of public administrations about the importance of including institutional integrity in the organizational culture.

In her presentation, “Anti-fraud plans in terms of public integrity”, Irene Bravo explained the opportunity that the current situation represents to improve the culture of public integrity.

Regarding the need to have anti-fraud measures plans to ensure that European funds are used in accordance with the applicable regulations, the head of the AVAF Prevention service drew several strong ideas:

  • They are measures to reinforce the mechanisms that the organization already has for the prevention, detection and correction of fraud; such as, for example, ethical codes, abstention mechanisms or risk assessments.
  • Few measures are mandatory (institutional anti-fraud declaration or declarations of absence of conflicts of interest, among others). Most are voluntary, at the choice of each organization based on their previous self-diagnosis.
  • They are only specifically required in relation to European funds and not to other funds of the organizations.

Irene Bravo has shown that it is an opportunity to change the paradigm in the culture of institutional public integrity. The good administration of public affairs and the principles of objectivity, impartiality, effectiveness, efficiency or legality are at stake.

The AVAF Guide. Public Integrity Plan: Roadmap and Facilitating Annexes of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, aims to accompany the work that exists in the preparation of anti-fraud plans and help in the gradual implementation of the public integrity system in each organization.
