The Institute’s 2020 Specialisation Course for Prosecutors has been cancelled



The Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Justice and Human Rights and the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) would like to announce that the 5th Specialisation Course for Prosecutors on International Criminal Justice, Transnational Crime and International Cooperation in Criminal Matters, scheduled to take place from October 26th to November 4th, 2020, will not proceed this year in light of prolonged worldwide uncertainty as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In December 2020, the Siracusa Institute and IAP will host an informational webinar about the Specialisation Course for Prosecutors (SCP), which will include presentations by select members of the SCP Faculty as well as prosecutors who have participated in past editions of the course. This webinar will be useful for prosecutors who are considering participating in the next edition of the course. The specific date and time of the webinar will be confirmed in September 2020, together with further details about SCP 2021.




The Specialisation Course for Prosecutors on International Criminal Justice, Transnational Crime and International Cooperation in Criminal Matters is specially designed for prosecutors to gain expertise from leading legal experts in matters relating to the investigation and prosecution of core international crimes such as war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide as well as transnational crimes including, among others, environmental crime, human trafficking and crimes involving new technologies. The course is also designed to provide participants with a solid foundation and expert insights into international legal cooperation frameworks and methods. In its practice-oriented approach to those topics, the course includes interactive lectures, and workshops and practical exercises.


Why participate?


  • As a Prosecutor, you will be offered a unique setting to network and exchange experiences and good practice with your peers from all over the world.


  • You will benefit from lectures and practical exercises based on case studies, which will enhance your knowledge and skills to investigate international and transnational crimes and cooperate internationally.
