International partners of the consortiums for the EU JUST projects: “Implementation of the Stockholm Roadmap in Cases of Terrorism and Radicalization” (FARINESS) and the “Judicial and Police Cooperation Preventing Radicalisation Towards Terrorism” (JP-COOPS) are honored to invite you to participate in the final joint online project conference “Crime – Terror Nexus: legal perspectives from the EU Member States” .
The final online conference will take 2 days. Day 1 will discuss both the overall FAIRNESS and JPCOOPS projects, as well as their main deliverable the FAIRNESS EU Toolkit and JP-COOPS Super Toolkit.
These Toolkits are aimed at helping to develop the capacities of national professionals to address issues relating to the rights of persons suspected or accused of crimes associated with terrorism and strengthen the information exchange and cooperation practices between competent national authorities.
Moreover, the Toolkits provide a centralized security solution dashboard for strategic planning, allowing for the presentation and dissemination of new content, as well as greater outreach and contact with potential stakeholders. Day 2 (by invitation only) will include the practical exercise for practitioners where they can simulate and validate the developed tools in the frameworks of JP-COOPS and FAIRNESS.
