The Institute

The "Research Institute for Transparency, Corruption and Financial Crime" (RITCFC) intends to cater to the teaching and research needs of the Law School and other Faculties of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as well as to contribute to the planning of Greece’s institutional reconstruction towards increased transparency and more effectively addressing corruption and financial crime, based on the rule of law. For this purpose, the Institute develops activities that promote these objectives in practice and enhance awareness among State authorities as well as within civil society about the importance of their achievement. In this context, a self-evident objective of the Institute is supporting those institutions that contribute in general to the functioning of the State according to the rule of law, and in particular to the proper administration of justice.
