The central theme of the Conference is “Crime, Society, Criminal Law, and Justice Reform”.


The creation of a healthy society is the responsibility of all actors within the justice system. The prevention and combating of crime are crucial factors in establishing a safe and peaceful environment. The functioning of the justice system plays a pivotal role in upholding societal norms and, consequently, in ensuring the security and tranquility of its members.

Through this conference, participants are invited to consider current and future challenges in order to develop effective tools in the fight against crime and enhance the well-being of society.


The objectives of this scientific conference will include:


  • Criminological developments and their role in crime prevention and control;
  • The evolution of society and the new forms of crime;
  • Organized crime and national security;
  • Corruption, money laundering, and their impact on social stability;
  • Challenges of criminal justice in safeguarding social protection and security;
  • The impact of non-criminal legislation (banking, taxation, customs, etc.) on crime prevention;
  • The impact of justice reform on fostering a secure social climate;
  • The functioning of the components of the criminal justice system (police, prosecution, courts, institutions of penal execution, probation services, legal representation) and crime prevention.


This conference will be organized into three main panels:


  1. First Panel – Criminological Developments and Society
  2. Second Panel – Legal and Jurisprudential Developments in Criminal Law
  3. Third Panel – Justice Reform and the Rule of Law
