Organized crime, in theory, stands out as the most rapidly transforming form, and therefore represents a particular challenge for all societies and institutions. One of the most effective means of combating organized crime are financial investigations. Therefore, the Centre for Monitoring and Research (CeMI) Montenegro, in cooperation with the Association for Democratic Initiatives (ADI) Sarajevo and Transparency Serbia, prepared the studies “Financial investigation as a tool to combat organized crime, corruption and money laundering”.
The studies represent a comparative analysis of legal frameworks, application and results achieved in the fight against organized crime and corruption through conducting of financial investigations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia. It is particularly worthwhile to highlight the recommendations and conclusions that the authors want to propose to improve the current situation. All three studies can be read individually, but also in together as a comparative analysis and exchange of experiences in the field of financial investigations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia. Authors of the studies are: dr Jelena Đurišić, University of Donja Gorica, Montenegro; Doc. dr Denis Pajić, University „Džemal Bijedić“ Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina; Nemanja Nenadić, Transparency Serbia.
