Specialized Bodies for Investigating Organized Crime

30.01.2007

(2007 – 2008)

This is the first ever comparative legal study of institutions specialized in investigating organized crime in three countries: the UK, Italy, and South Africa. The project presents and analyzes the methods of investigation and their effectiveness as well as the ways of establishing optimal institutional frameworks aimed at achieving an integrated model of countering and fighting organized crime. It questions the traditional view that the police, prosecutors and courts ought to have a monopoly on the prevention and combat of organized crime.
