Due to the unforeseeable circumstances caused by the worldwide pandemic of convid-19 and the imposed movement restrictions, the Research Institute for Transparency, Corruption and Financial Crime, Faculty of Law - Aristotle University of Thessaloniki decided that the 2020 Summer School, hosted through the Center for Education and Lifelong Learning of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, will be conducted online on the planned dates.
