There are many people around the world committed to fight organised crime, money laundering and illicit financial flows, lobbying for greater transparency and improved drug laws. State institutions cannot tackle social phenomena like mafias, mafia-cultures and corruption on their own. Commitment and cooperation with civil society are essential to recognising and delegitimising criminal actors, depriving them of their breeding ground, and building a sustainable and just future for all. That is why we need to get to know each other.

Friday evening will be dedicated to the story of two journalists who investigated organised crime, corruption and illicit financial flows: Daphne Caruana Galizia and Ján Kuciak. Their brutal killings made evident what happens if structures of organised crime are not tackled enough. We want to put a special focus on civil societies’ possibilities to change such situations. We are happy to have Corinne Vella Caruana Galizia, Daphne Caruana Galizia’s sister, as our guest.

The opening will be followed by a party with special guests.

On Saturday, we will be offering workshops on the following topics (the list is still work in progress, titles may be subject to change):
