This scientific article is aimed at providing an overview of historical development of extradition, its nature, changes, legal determination, exposition to political influence, conditions and limitations, as well as its gap between the need to protect rights of an individual in the extradition procedure, on one hand, and the need to suppress growing international crime, on the other. Since extradition bivalent procedure showed inconsistencies in practice, that problem has led to permanent efforts of legal science to increase its efficiency. There are no sufficient scholars writings on extradition in the Balkans and the beginning cooperation among the Balkan states seems to be more or less restrained, despite the fact that the growing international crime has become the real and actual threat not only in this region, Bearing in mind the importance of extradition law for the Balkan countries, this article intends to encourage research and cooperation, because extradition, despite its limitations, remains the most effective tool in suppressing international crime. The method of work used in the article is the comparative analyses of foreign literature as a base for drawing conclusions on the major trends of extradition law.

Keywords: Extradition, political offense (exception), international crime
