Towards a global network of regional judicial cooperation networks

Nine panellists representing regional judicial cooperation networks (WACAP, EJN, IberRed, AIAMP, CASC and SEAJust) will share experiences and best practices in judicial cooperation in criminal matters. With a view to further strengthening inter-regional cooperation, the panellists will explore avenues to establish a global mechanism for operational coordination to effectively respond to organized crime and exchange knowledge, expertise and best practices.

The panel will be discussing throughout an interactive online debate held in a Q&A format, and the participants will be welcome to ask questions and make comments.

The event will be hosted through Microsoft Teams. No prior registration is required. Link to the event:
