Conference Overview:
Several cases related to corruption and fraud have occurred in different EU countries during the last years. These cases have arisen in both public and private organizations, and they highlight the importance of institutions and firms trying to prevent the misuse of funds. Moreover, organizations have to be aware of the effects that such practices might have when taking their financial decisions and they need to deal with it.

In this way, an aim of the conference is the development of high-level comparative studies on the analysis of the factors leading the possibilities to explain and prevent fraud and corruption practices in European organizations and institutions, that may, directly or indirectly, pertain to the usage of EU funds. An additional particular interest is, more broadly, on the financial factors and consequences of corruption and fraud in Europe. In this way, the topics may include financial corporate decision making adopted by managers, boards, politicians and other relevant stakeholders in both public and private organizations that may be relevant for either the prevention of the occurrence of corruption. Also welcome are papers related to the bankruptcy risk of firms due to corruption attitudes and their decisions on capital structure, on the use and consecution of financial EU funds, the liquidity, provisions or dividends. Finally, the influence of Fintech in money laundering regulatory risk evaluation, the effect of financial culture and the financial system of the firm’s propensity to bribe are also relevant topics.
