Year of Graduation: 2019

The present research is made with the purpose of conducting a complex analysis of the institute of complicity in economic crimes. According to the initial main objectives of the research, approach of the legislator to the definition of this phenomenon is examined, as well as its chronological evolution and development. In parallel with legislation, specific attention is given to the analysis of theory and doctrine of criminal law. The attempt is made not only to organise all researches made to date, but also to compare the process of interaction between science and law in this area of criminal law. Various aspects of intended joint complicity of two or more persons in committing intended crime as a legal phenomenon are designated. The present analysis revealed the value of academic discussion in relation to complicity: differences in views of prominent scholars with regard to ascertainment of intent, subjective links between the accomplices, level of responsibility of each of the accomplices. These questions remain challenging despite the long and rich history of the institute of complicity. Furthermore, during the examination of complicity in economic crimes, the research is made on the influence of the leading concepts on practice, revealing its instability and variability in the process of identifying and evaluating several categories of the institute of complicity. The structure of the bachelor’s thesis consists of introduction, two chapters, conclusion and a reference list. The main part of the research is covered in two basic chapters. It seems reasonable to isolate the research on the institute of complicity in the first chapter. The second chapter of the research is dedicated in its entirety to theory and problematic doctrines of economic crimes committed in complicity as well as to the analysis of the questions, which nowadays pose the highest level of academic interest.
