Course Description

The methods of drug trafficking are constantly evolving with a wide diversification in the nature of the products (especially the development of synthetic drugs), their origin, their transport, their use and a growing complexity of the organization of the distribution networks. The judicial police and criminal justice system have had to adapt their responses for a more efficient struggle against this traffic: specialized services, JIRS, international cooperation and use of new and coordinated legal and technical means (non-justification of resources, money laundering, seizure and confiscation of criminal assets, funding of aid funds, etc.)

This training will present all aspects from a legal, practical and technical point of view and present the international stakes and tools, permitting multidisciplinary exchanges and roundtables among professionals. It will also delve into the question of the definition and conduct of a penal policy as part of a larger public policy to prevent drug addiction and adapted to the different profiles of those concerned (users, drug mules, etc.).
