Specialised day-and-a-half training focused on the practical evidentiary challenges involved in the investigation, prosecution and trial of terrorism cases. This training will gather judges and prosecutors from different EU Member States to exchange views and best practices on the treatment of terrorism cases, the gathering and use of evidence from third States and conflict zones, the use of intelligence as evidence, and the use of evidence from social media and other online platforms. Participants will be divided into breakout groups to discuss practical cases and investigative approaches to complex files. Through plenary and roundtable discussions, practitioners will exchange views with other experts in this field and share their own national experience in dealing with foreign fighters and home-grown terrorism. Supporting lectures will offer an overview of the most recent legal developments in the field of counter-terrorism, including the new EU Directive on combating terrorism, the role of judicial cooperation in tackling terrorism, and the support offered by EU institutions and agencies therein.
