The Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Justice and Human Rights and International Association of Prosecutors, in collaboration with and supported by the International Association of Penal Law and the National Attorneys General Training and Research Institute, are pleased to open applications for the 'Second Specialization Course for Junior Prosecutors on International Criminal Justice and International Cooperation in Criminal Justice Matters'.

This Specialization Course is designed to highlight the most important synergies between international criminal justice and the domestic prosecution of international crimes. Over two weeks, the Course will prepare domestic prosecutors to work on cases involving core international crimes and transnational crimes, and also offer specialized training in international legal cooperation, aspects of which include extradition, the transfer of prisoners, mutual legal assistance, the transfer of criminal proceedings, execution of foreign sentences and recognition of foreign criminal judgments.

The Specialization Course has been developed by leading international practitioners and jurists, and will employ a wide variety of interactive, practice-oriented and experiential methods to equip participants with the knowledge, analytical tools, practical skills and proven techniques required to develop effective investigation and prosecution strategies relevant to their areas of practice and/or interest.

The Course consists of two modules. Each module builds on interactive lectures with practical exercises and simulations. Participants are strongly advised to attend both modules. The Course culminates in a detailed case study-based exercise that draws on the advanced knowledge, practical skills and techniques that have been developed over the two weeks.

Who should attend?
Prosecutors and related criminal justice professionals with up to ten years’ professional experience. As the Specialization Course will be conducted in English, a high level of English proficiency is required.

All practical information about the Specialization Course and the online registration form can be found on the Siracusa Institute website.
