OLAF hosted anti-fraud communicators from across Europe in Brussels last week to share insights into the latest campaigns on exposing and deterring fraud.
Communication experts working for anti-fraud public organisations discussed crisis communications, the importance of storytelling, as well as real-life communication scenarios. Around 40 representatives from OLAF's anti-fraud counterparts in the member states participated in the lively discussions.
The meeting was an annual event organised by the OLAF Anti-Fraud Communicators' Network (OAFCN). The OAFCN was created over a decade ago and is a unique cross-European network of communication experts working on anti-fraud issues. The Network brings together Communication Officers and Spokespersons from OLAF's operational partners in the Member States (i.e. customs, police, law enforcement agencies, Member States' Anti-Fraud Coordination Services (AFCOS) and prosecutors' offices). It plays a pivotal role in communicating the threat of fraud to the public across all EU Member States, as well as the joint efforts made by national and European authorities to combat it. It is a key platform for raising awareness and reaching out to various audiences on fraud issues.
