The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and DiploFoundation are pleased
to present two new online courses on the universal legal regime against
terrorism: one for English-speaking participants, and one for
French-speaking participants. Both aim to strengthen national capacities by
assisting criminal justice officials and other individuals involved in
counter-terrorism issues to develop the skills and knowledge required to
effectively utilize the channels for international legal cooperation
envisaged in 16 treaties adopted within the UN system between 1963 and 2005,
and a number of binding resolutions of the Security Council.


The courses are conducted entirely online, over a period of 6 weeks. Reading
materials and tools for online interaction are provided through an online
classroom. Each week, participants read the provided lecture text, adding
questions, comments, and references in the form of hypertext entries.
Lecturers and other participants read and respond to the hypertext entries,
creating interaction based on the text. During the week, participants also
complete additional online activities. At the end of the week, participants
and lecturers meet online in a chat room to discuss the week's topic.
Courses are based on a collaborative approach to learning, with a high level
of interaction.

The courses are delivered by staff members of the Terrorism Prevention
Branch of the UNODC possessing experience in criminal justice issues and
extensive work experience in the provision of legal advisory services and
technical assistance worldwide.
