From Research Group to a Partner of Global Players in Tackling Organised Crime

As of April 2019 the funding of Balkan Criminology by the Max Planck Society has been successfully concluded. The scientific and institutional nucleus that has been created during the past 6 years by Prof. Dr. Getos Kalac and her team will continue its operations at the Zagreb Faculty of Law, with the generous support of the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime through its new global programme aimed at incubating resilience in communities harmed or threatened by criminal governance, the Resilience Fund.

Besides continuing its work and network activities with an even stronger focus on Balkan organised crime, Balkan Criminology will organise a one-week intensive course at the IUC in Dubrovnik in March 2020, particularly focusing on investigative journalism, civil society activism and their interlinkages with criminal justice agencies countering organised crime, in order to build resilience in local communities of the Balkans. The course will be held at the IUC in Dubrovnik from 23-27th March 2020. A limited amount of scholarships for funding attendance of professionals from the Balkan region is available.
