International Association of Prosecutors 1st IAP Pan European Regional Conference  May 02-05, 2023, Istanbul - Türkiye  

Date: Tuesday 2 May 2023 - Friday 5 May 2023

Location: Istanbul, the Republic of Türkiye

The General Prosecutor of the Supreme Court of Appeal of the Republic of Türkiye, Bekir Şahin, and his team will host the 1st IAP Pan European Regional Conference in May 2023. It is a year that coincides with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of Türkiye. 

The theme of the IAP Regional Conference to be held in Istanbul on May 2-5, 2023, has been determined as "Effective Investigation in the Age of Digitalisation".   

As is well known, as technology advances, the types of crimes committed in the digital environment using information systems continue to rise in a variety of ways. 

Crimes committed in cyberspace pose a great danger to society.  These crimes have transnational characteristics and negatively affect the legal, economic, and social order of countries.  Since these crimes are transnational and violate the legal order of the countries, conducting investigations and gathering evidence is difficult. The conference will bring together top European prosecutors to discuss how to mitigate the harm caused by cybercrime through mutual contracts and collaboration. 

The conference will also tackle the following subthemes: 

  1. The Appearance and Effects of Digitalisation in the Criminal Procedure 
  2. Fighting Against Economic Crimes in the Age of Digitalisation   
  3. Artificial Intelligence in Criminal Procedure
