Economic Fraud

Eu Fraud and New Member States: is it a Case of the Curate’s Egg? (euroc Presentation)

Brendan Quirke, from the Liverpool John Moores University, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Crime and Society,” under the title “Eu Fraud and New Member States: is it a Case of the Curate’s Egg? (euroc Presentation)”. Here is the abstract: This paper will consider the experiences of countries such as the Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, and Croatia in seeking to establish effective anti-EU fraud structures and measures. It will examine the problems these countries encountered, how they have sought to overcome them and the support they have received. Attention will also be paid to the context within which applications to join the European Union were made, the political, economic and social circumstances of the various countries including the extent of corruption. Common issues and problems will be considered such as: existing problems of corruption and economic crime, difficulties in establishing AFCOS structures/networks, support offered by OLAF and the Commission. Other issues such as: lack of administrative capacity, the weaknesses of anti-fraud institutions, lack of investigatory experience, lack of knowledge of irregularity reporting requirements, and incomplete installation of AFIS (Anti-Fraud Information System – a secure communication network) will also be considered. Fragmentation is a major issue in all countries and leads to duplication of effort and inefficient use of resources. Wider lessons for future accessions of countries such as Serbia, Macedonia and Bosnia will also be drawn.
