The initiative on financial investigations is recognized as good practice by the jurisdictions in the region - Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Kosovo under UNSCR - and by the European Commission, as a method of ensuring complementarity and cost-effectiveness between the EU and the UN in the Balkans.
The current Working Arrangement between UNODC and CEPOL is an example of cooperation that is mutually beneficial and allows both offices to strengthen their capacity building activities by sharing knowledge, expertise, best practices and coordinated approaches to learning.

The objective of the meeting was to discuss the programme results in SEE, the programme implementation methodology, as well as potential expansion strategies. Among the positive outcomes of the event were the very active networking of the professionals and the energetic exchanges on best practices related to the programme implementation.
Participants who attended the workshop represented the relevant national institutions Ministries of Education and Security from the region and local Lions Clubs from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Serbia.
Understanding the cultural and technical specificities during the programme implementation, mostly in view of the structure of national educational system and its readiness to integrate and sustain programme implementation, the programme was eventually extended to Bosnia and Herzegovina with suggested longer implementation modality to two years.
Following the expansion strategy, the initially involved countries in the programme pilot Montenegro, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Serbia also continued with the additional, longer, programatic cycle with supplementary 10 elementary schools per country.
Furthermore, the LQSA programme will be offered to Croatia following the suggested innovative implementation modality. The evidence-based results are conclusive on the positive effect of the implemented programme with the intervention groups of students comparing to the control group who haven't had direct contact with the programme intervention.
The regional workshop is considered as the annual platform for the exchange of practices related to the evidence based social emotional learning interventions and its scale-up in SEE among national professionals and Lions Club representatives.

Upon completion of the training, 21 experts were certified as national trainers on financial investigations.
In the future, they will be engaged in the development of the national curricula on financial investigations in their respective jurisdictions. UNODC will deliver the third training of this kind, within the mentioned project, in Vienna later this month.
