Core Course

Using Information Derived from Intelligence to Generate Evidence

The Core Courses initially comprised of two foundational curricula:

  • Using Information Derived from Intelligence to Generate Evidence For Terrorism Investigations and Prosecutions; and 
  • Successful Prosecutions of Counter-Terrorism Cases.

While Successful Prosecutions has been integrated into the Academic Unit’s new foundational curricula, Using Information Derived from Intelligence remains an essential resource for practitioners in our core geographic focus regions.

Developed through a collaborative partnership with adult education experts, judicial and prosecutorial training specialists, and practitioners with deep subject-matter expertise and experience, the curriculum builds crucial capacity to address the real-world challenges faced by practitioners in our geographic focus regions.

Courses on Using Information Derived from Intelligence to Generate Evidence For Terrorism Investigations and Prosecutions deepen participating practitioners’ understanding of the value of using intelligence to generate evidence for terrorism investigations and prosecutions. Through dynamic sessions, case studies and hypothetical exercises, practitioners build their capacity to identify relevant challenges and are equipped with effective strategies for addressing them.
