New #DocufòrumAVAF in the classrooms of the Faculty of Law of the University of Valencia


The collaboration of the Valencian Antifraud Agency with the universities of the Valencian Community is more and more frequent. 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 25, 2022, with the participation of 45 students from the subject of Legal Theory of the Double Degree in Law and Economics, with the collaboration from Professor María Dolores Palomo Navarro. Anselm Bodoque Arribas was responsible for the AVAF to energize the session with the students.

After watching the documentary “Corruption: Harmful Organism”, the students ask questions, which in this case focused on the origin and causes of corruption, the social impact and collective costs it entails, the perception of corruption in our society and in other neighboring countries, or why there is no institution similar to the AVAF at the state level.

Subsequently, the AVAF representative discusses with the students the issues raised in their questions and others related to the need for greater public ethics and integrity, as well as prevention and civic training policies or the functions of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency and public policies to fight corruption.

The students especially insisted on the consequences of corruption in institutions and in our society, on the non-existence of a state agency, and on the prosecution of crimes of corruption. Likewise, the reception of gifts and the different types of conflicts of interest were discussed.

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.

The AVAF returns to the classrooms of the Jaume I University of Castellón with the docuforum “Corruption: harmful organism”


The #DocuforumAVAF activity has returned to the university classrooms of Castellón in this 2022-2023 academic year thanks to the collaboration of Jaime Clemente’s professor, from the Department of Constitutional Law of the UJI.

The learning experience proposed by the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency (AVAF) consists of several phases and aims to make students reflect on the importance of promoting integrity in public administration and protecting corruption whistleblowers.

The documentary “Corruption: harmful organism” is viewed in a first phase by students, in this case, from the subject of Constitutional Regulation and Fundamental Rights of the Fundamental Public Management and Administration degree. After it, they have the opportunity to formulate their doubts and questions on the subject, which are received by the technical staff of the AVAF.

Based on the concerns shown by the docuforum participants, the face-to-face session is prepared, where a training technician from the Agency explains the objectives and functions of the AVAF and guides the students in their debate on corruption in public administrations. On this occasion, Pilar Moreno was responsible for invigorating the session at the UJI in Castellón.

The debate in the classroom was dynamic thanks to the use of digital participation tools. This focused on answering questions from the students, giving full prominence to their concerns and resolving the issues raised. Among the doubts expressed, the concern about the relationship between corruption and the increase in poverty and class difference stands out, as well as why in Spain people who denounced corruption were not protected.

A total of 29 students participated in this learning experience in person, where they were able to share the different perceptions they had of public administration, society and the institutional system; being aware, furthermore, that young people and society as a whole can and should be agents in the fight against corruption in order to become active, conscious and free citizens.
