Research interests include: corruption, organised crime, economic crime and governance in post communist societies generally and the Western Balkans more specifically. Doctoral thesis analyses the roots of judicial corruption in Albania and the Western Balkans and considers why reforms are not yielding more concrete results. It explores the generating circumstances of judicial corruption, its dynamics and its interplay with organised crime. It attempts to theorise some of the contextually necessary conditions for the rule of law.
