Law Enforcement/Investigations Expert Trainer


The International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law (IIJ), located in Malta, has a mission to deliver innovative and sustainable capacity-building through the implementation of counter-terrorism-related, rule of law-based good practices developed by the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) and other international and regional fora.

Since its inauguration in 2014, the IIJ has trained more than 8,500 criminal justice practitioners through its interactive capacity-building workshops – in Malta and abroad – that enhance the competencies of parliamentarians, judges, prosecutors, police, prison and other criminal justice practitioners to address terrorism and related transnational criminal activities within a rule of law framework. The IIJ delivers capacity-building training tailored to the needs of the regions it serves, including North, West and East Africa; the Middle East; and select engagement in the Balkans, and Central, South and Southeast Asia. For more information on the IIJ, please visit the IIJ’s website at

In 2020, the IIJ launched an Academic Unit to provide in-depth courses to criminal justice practitioners aimed at filling critical knowledge gaps necessary for successfully countering terrorism and transnational crime.


The IIJ is seeking applications from qualified English-speaking law enforcement practitioners/investigators to support the development and delivery of an innovative and ground-breaking new Financial Counter-Terrorism Academic Curriculum course (FIN E/CTAC) for prosecutors and investigators. 

The FIN E/CTAC course will be offered to mid and senior-level investigators and prosecutors from jurisdictions in Southeast Asia including Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

The course will consist of two components:

  1. An online component (FIN ECTAC), consisting of self-study modules, tutorials and a ‘tabletop exercise’ delivered over a period of five to six weeks in September/October 2024.
  2. An in-person component (FIN CTAC) consisting of five days intensive face-to-face training delivered in December 2024.  Participation in the in person/FIN CTAC will be dependant on successful completion of the online/FIN ECTAC course.

The FIN E/CTAC course will cover key aspects of proactive and reactive counter financing of terrorism investigations including:

  1. Role and Mission in Financial Investigations.
  2. Evidence Collection.
  3. International Judicial Cooperation.

By the end of the course, participants will have enhanced knowledge for the successful investigation and prosecution of counter terrorism financing cases in their respective jurisdictions.
