The findings and recommendations of assessments and practical discussions held by the group of practitioners from Albania and Montenegro, as well as international experts, were presented for further discussions during the workshop.
If the investigation against organised crime seeks to be successful, the links and channels among those institutions are instrumental. This element has been highlighted in many expert discussions as an issue to address and reinforce wherever organised crime is manifesting.
The co-operation among those institutions, at the national and international level, has been the focus of assessments and practical discussions during the last 3 months among practitioners from Albania and Montenegro and international experts. This was a project financed by Spain and implemented by the Strategic Police Matters Unit with the support of the OSCE missions in Albania and Montenegro.
Systems, structures and mechanisms have been analysed and during the discussions, good practices have also been identified. The project was focused on the investigations on organised crime in general, taking a particular view on trafficking in human beings crimes.
