On 9 March 2021 the AIRE Centre Western Balkans Programme and the Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative will hold the concluding conference of its two year project to strengthen regional cooperation in asset recovery practice in South-East Europe. This conference will involve regional experts as well as leading international figures in law enforcement and asset recovery. Speakers include Tim Eicke, the judge in respect of the UK on the European Court of Human Rights, Hanne Juncher, the Executive Secretary of the Group of States against Corruption, and Burkhard Muhl, Head of the European Financial and Economic Crime Centre at EUROPOL.

 

Over the last two years the AIRE Centre has worked with the judiciary, prosecutors and decision makers in six jurisdictions: producing targeted publications, conducting training events and study-visits, and establishing the foundations for standardised statistical collection and analysis across the region. The project also contributed to the establishment of asset-recovery as a region-wide policy objective and laid the groundwork for a regional network of asset-recovery experts and practitioners.

The conference will take place in a hybrid format, with a central event taking place in Sarajevo involving speakers and the presentation of the report. This central hub will be accompanied by six regional hubs in all the jurisdictions of the region, connected to the central event via video-link. This project and conference were supported by the UK Government and received assistance from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
