Ohio Northern University professor, student, alumnus published in journal of the Ohio Council of Criminal Justice Education
Tristin Kilgallon, assistant professor of criminal justice in Ohio Northern University’s Department of Psychology, Sociology and Criminal Justice, Jordan Turner, a senior criminal justice major from Casstown, Ohio, and Enver Krivaca, a 2012 ONU graduate of the LLM program, have co-authored an article published in 2014 spring edition of Criminal Justice Praxis, the journal of the Ohio Council of Criminal Justice Education.
Titled “Combatting Corruption in Kosovo Customs: Observations and Recommendations,” the article is a result of the trio going to Kosovo in summer 2013 to tour Kosovo Customs checkpoints and interview customs officials to research reasons for corruption in the country despite great amounts of money and time invested by donor nations in attempts to reform Kosovo Customs.
“The basic idea of the research was that, despite the great amounts of money and time invested by donor nations in attempts to reform Kosovo Customs, it still has issues with corruption,” Kilgallon said. “This paper basically looks at some of the potential causes of corruption in Kosovo Customs and offers some practical recommendations as to how these problems can be resolved.”
