Otranto Legality Experience is a unique opportunity to investigate issues related to the relationship between organised crime and globalisation, through workshops, seminars and discussions held by Italian and international speakers.
Organised by FLARE Network, the event is held from 5th to 11th of September 2011.
The goal is to develop and set a benchmark in Europe for the role of civil society in combating transnational organised crime.
The 2010 edition of the event was attended by more than 60 speakers and more than 200 members. Media partners of the event were Current TV Italy, Lastampa.it, La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno and Telenorba.
OLE is dedicated to the memory of Renata Fonte, killed by mafia on March 31, 1984, and this year to the journalist Toni Fontana. The cultural coordintator of the event is Vittorio Agnoletto.
OLE is made of two parts: the Summer Camp and the Forum.

The 2011 edition of the summer camp will follow a public forum open to all, with meetings, debates, cultural events on issues of globalisation, social justice and finance. Participants include highly qualified speakers from different regions of the world.
The title of the 2011 event is Illegal Economy, Mafias and Financial Globalisation, aimed at civil society, public administration and all stakeholders.
