New partnerships in Romania: Mapping and Visualising Cross-Border Crime

ICAR is partnering with two non-for-profit organisations in Romania, the Journalism Development Network and the Rise Project, to launch the 3-year "Mapping and Visualizing Cross-Border Crime Project.”

With funding support from the Swiss–Romanian Cooperation Programme, the objective is to enhance the investigative and research skills of journalists, civil society activists and law enforcement in Romania to detect and uncover local and cross-border illicit networks and to increase the exposure of organised crime structures as well as their modus of operandi.

In the context of this project, ICAR will provide training in financial investigation and asset recovery, introduce ICAR’s IT tools supporting such investigative processes as well as produce a handbook for tracing illicit funds.
