Combating corruption and organised crime in the Western Balkans through strengthening regional cooperation in asset recovery
Effective implementation of the legislation is impossible without sharing knowledge and experiences. Both AIRE Centre and RAI have put that as a top priority bringing together judges, prosecutors and other experts working in the field of asset recovery. These efforts led to recognising the need to establish the Asset Recovery Platform.
Effective implementation of domestic legislation and international standards is a crucial aspect of the fight against crime and plays an important role in building public confidence in both national and international institutions. The AR Platform is a tool designed for practitioners, but it is hoped that the Platform will also be of use to academics, decision-makers, journalists and students to access resources, news and updates on the latest developments relevant to the region.
The AR Platform is set to:
facilitate communication and exchange of good practice amongst asset recovery practitioners
provide access to guides and other resources
become an advocacy tool fostering ideas and initiatives to strengthen the rule of law and fight organized crime and corruption.
Through this platform, we want to secure greater outreach and help raise awareness of asset recovery as one of the key tools in combating corruption and organized crime. As an online tool, the Platform is supporting the functioning of the AR Network. GO TO MEMBER ZONE
