Within the paper it is examined the institution of extradition between Romania and Serbia, in the light of the provisions of the Treaty into force and the Romanian special law. We have also achieved a comparative examination between the provisions of the bilateral instrument and that of the European Convention on Extradition of 1957, an aspect which highlighted some elements of resemblance between them, several provisions of the European legislative act being taken into the bilateral legal act. The elements of novelty of this paper concern the comparative examination of the two international legal instruments, references to Romanian special law and de lege ferenda proposal, through which we express our opinion for the adoption of a new law regulating the institution of extradition between the two countries. The work can be useful for academics and institutions with direct responsibilities in the domain of judicial cooperation in criminal matters in the two states.
