The objective of the research project was to provide appropriate and updated background information for envisaged technical assistance measures through an explorative study of the phenomenon of money laundering and its predicate crimes, in the period 2000-2005. The research, conducted in cooperation with OSCE Mission to Serbia, lasted 8 months and was funded by the US Department of State and the US Department of Justice.
The critical analysis identified possible ways of improving the functioning of all relevant institutions in charge of the fight against money laundering and its predicate crimes in Serbia and a set of recommendations for institutional improvements.
The research was presented during an International Conference in Belgrade in October 2006.
