Among the many difficulties that South-East European societies face, there are but two major obstacles which cause significant harm both to the socio-economic development of the region and to its path to unity within the continent. These are: corruption and organised crime. This article will explore, at a rather theoretical level, the correlation between corruptive behaviours and development. It will then examine current trends in corruption and organised crime in south-east Europe and explore and offer some strategies as to how to dismantle the political-criminal power structures throughout the region.
