The OECD Integrity Forum is an anti-corruption forum of policy makers, businesses, civil society, academia and other stakeholders. It aims to identify new approaches to prevent, detect and sanction corruption.

Dr Eleftheriadis, who specialises in European Union and public law, was the moderator of the second plenary session, on ‘Reaping the benefits of Investment for All: Preventing the Capture by Special Interests’. In his remarks Dr Eleftheriadis spoke of his recent work on studying the political economy of special interests in Greece and of his experience of EU public procurement rules, that have contributed greatly in increasing transparency and integrity in the award of public contracts throughout the European Union.
