Starting DateFebruary 1, 2017 Ending DateFebruary 2, 2017 Dakar, Senegal

On 1-2 February 2017, the IIJ conducted a regional judicial workshop entitled “Assessing the Country Action plans: achievements and limitations” in Dakar, Senegal.

The event was a follow-on event to a judicial training program focusing on implementing The GCTF Hague Memorandum on Good Practices for the Judiciary in Adjudicating Terrorism Offenses” which had taken place in July 2016 in Malta and which had culminated in the participants developing Country Action Plans to implement as practical measures at national level to more effectively adjudicate terrorism cases.

Judges and representatives of national judicial institutes who had taken place in the initial training and who came from seven countries in the Sahel (Benin, Chad, Mali, Niger, Cameroon, Senegal and Burkina Faso) came together in Senegal to discuss the achievements and limitations in implementing the Country Action Plans. The event also covered specialty topics, including the rehabilitation and reintegration of terrorist offenders as well as prison conditions and the prison system.
