Involvement of society

Guaranteeing a good political system and offering citizens scrutiny mechanisms capable of exercising healthy control over public decisions is one of the challenges we must meet to achieve quality governance.

To this end, the Anti-Fraud Office engages with a wide range of organisations which are essential to ensuring political and citizen participation and are key actors in the exercise of control over public authority.

The accumulated experience over the ten years of operation of the Office, both at the level of research and prevention activity, has allowed us to identify which areas of risk are most exposed to corruption, fraud or others irregularities.
