Annotation: Selected papers are presented from the 132nd International Senior Seminar on "Strengthening the Legal Regime for Combating Terrorism" (January 10-February 9, 2006) as well as from the Eighth International Training Course on Corruption Control in Criminal justice (October 24-November 17, 2005).
Abstract: One of the papers from the 132nd International Senior Seminar provides an overview of the role of the United Nations (U.N.) and the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime in facilitating, accessing, and implementing the 13 universal legal instruments against terrorism. Another paper profiles new international criminal law perspectives on countering terrorism, followed by a paper that outlines the United Nations' fight against terrorism. A paper poses issues likely to emerge in combating money laundering as telecommunications technology and financial systems converge to achieve cashless digital transactions. Two papers address how mainstream Islamic beliefs and practices condemn radical Islamic terrorists, with attention to how Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, is combating the influence and threat of al-Qaeda. Participants' papers from the 132nd International Senior Seminar provide reports on the following countries' counterterrorism measures: Brazil, India, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. Reports from seminar groups pertain to the criminalization of various terrorism-related activities; the financing of terrorism; and the prevention, detection, investigation, and prosecution of terrorist acts. Four papers from the Eighth International Training Course on Corruption Control in Criminal Justice provide reports from the following countries on the issue: Bangladesh, Republic of the Fiji Islands, Madagascar, and Uganda.
