The upcoming International Workshop on Integrating the Issues of Cybercrime and Electronic Evidence into Judicial Training Curricula aims to ensure that cybercrime and electronic evidence related issues become a continuous part of judicial training institutions' curricula in all GLACY countries.
In 2014, the Workshop on Judicial training strategies on cybercrime and electronic evidence for GLACY and CyberCrime@EAP countries held in Bucharest, Romania provided a report on elements of domestic judicial training concepts for each of the participating countries. Throughout 2015 and 2016, Introductory and Advanced Judicial Training courses have been rolled-out as part of the GLACY project activities. It is essential now to follow up and discuss the long-term integration of judicial training on cybercrime into the curricula of training institutions, preferably as part of broader judicial training strategies.
The international workshop is addressed to representatives of judicial training institutions and trainers from each of the GLACY countries (Mauritius, Morocco, Philippines, South Africa, Senegal, Sri Lanka and Tonga). By the end of the meeting, participants are expected to adopt a report on the current state of judicial training on cybercrime and electronic evidence and the way forward to ensure the long-term integration of these topics into the curricula of judicial training academies in their respective countries.
The event will take place on 11-13 April in Johannesburg, South Africa and it is jointly organized by the South African Judicial Education Institute and the Council of Europe.
