Balkan Organized Crime Through the Lens of Legislation

26.01.2008

(2008)

This is the first ever comparative legal study of Balkan legislations on organized crime. The project identifies common as well as specific problems in the criminal laws of Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Croatia, Romania, Greece, and Turkey. The project experts seek an answer to the question of why the provisions punishing organized crime are seldom if ever applied in each of the countries under review. They analyze the reasons for that and seek successful models of fighting organized crime in the different countries.
