Transnational Crime - A Threat To Regional Economic Security


  • Florin TUDOR

    (Dunarea de Jos University of Galati, Romania)


Transnational organized crime has become a key issue in international affairs and, unfortunately, one of the most important aspects of the global economy. Experts highlight the fact that organized crime - with all its undesirable consequences on competitiveness, or such other negative effects like counterfeiting or environmental damage - has the capability to undermine the rule of law and good governance. In this regard it is absolutely necessary to find ways of fighting against organized crime at international level. In order to respond effectively against the threats of organized crime, a series of regional and thematic transnational assessment is required. This is all the more beneficial since these assessments can contribute to economic security in the region. Although progress has been made in this area by international bodies and the European institutions, the present article proposes an analysis at regional level, based on current threats of organized crime in South-eastern and Central Europe
