Organized crime and law corruption are shaped by the lack of strength of the control mechanisms of the State and civil society. The results presented in the present article attest to the links between the growth of organized crime and that of corruption in the public sector in a large number of countries. The structure and organization of criminal justice services is an important building block in the quest for improved institutional performance. Virtually every national study commission and standard-setting group has offered recommendations on structure, usually as part of larger bodies of reform doctrine. Yet, structural proposals have rarely been sorted out, compared and analyzed across criminal justice components. This article outlines the difficulties of dealing adequately in legal terms with these phenomena and analyses the different approaches adopted so far at the national and international law level. The present article analyses the steps taken so far at the national and international level, against the background of the respective practical and theoretical challenges. Researchers believe that one of the most important aspects of effective management is to learn the science of organized crime.
