Regulatory Profile of Organized Crime in Bulgaria

22.01.2009

(2009)

The project includes a legal study of national and international criminal and administrative regulatory instruments and provisions on organized crime prevention and control, which are in force for Bulgaria, and the relevant case law. The level of exhaustiveness of the regulatory framework and its internal consistency and alignment with international standards are analyzed and assessed, and the tendencies of its development and social adequacies are outlined.

The study seeks to identify the Bulgarian legislator’s understanding of criminal associations and their criminal activities. It will also assess the correspondence of this understanding to the actual manifestation of organized criminal activity in Bulgaria. Conclusions on the effectiveness of the Bulgarian legislative policy against organized crime will be drawn to help the legislator.
