In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on the cross-border administrative approach to organized crime. This leads to the need for administrative authorities in various countries to meet. Meetings with the purpose of discussing cases and exploring opportunities for cooperation. At such international meetings, organisations/persons gather from different (meeting) cultures with different powers, processes and procedures. These differences need to be taken into account to achieve a successful expert platform.
Based on the experiences of the EURIEC, this document has been compiled as a guide to present the Do’s and Don’ts in organising international expert platforms. A tool for those considering organising such a meeting.
