We are delighted to announce that registration for the 28th Annual Conference and General Meeting of the IAP is now open.
The theme of the 28th Annual Conference is The Changing Nature of Crime in the 21st Century:  Challenges and Responses.  The nature and complexity of crime is changing and the crime threat that we face continues to grow and evolve.  Criminal networks are becoming increasingly resilient and adaptable, exploiting technology to enable emerging types of crime and developing new methods of committing more traditional crimes. An ever-increasing number of criminal offences now cross multiple jurisdictional boundaries, with devastating consequences for our global community.  With evidence, witnesses, victims, suspects and assets often located in more than one country, the importance of effective and constructive international cooperation cannot be underestimated. 
Against that backdrop, the conference will explore how we can best organise and operate our prosecutorial agencies to maximise our capacity, resources and ability to tackle a range of crime typologies.  The conference will consider the growth in digital evidence and how technological developments can be effectively utilised to progress complex and large-scale investigations and prosecutions.  It will examine new and innovative ways of tackling crime and freezing and confiscating assets, carefully considering how to increase the tools available to prosecutors and investigators to successfully disrupt criminal activity.
We must use our skills and expertise to innovate and collaborate – working together to bring robust prosecutions across borders and to address common yet complex challenges in a pragmatic, effective and constructive way.  Hearing insights from across the globe, we will explore how we can best prevent criminals from exploiting the differences in legal systems, practices and procedures to evade justice and how we can collectively work to prevent and combat organised crime, terrorism and other serious criminal activity.
Please note that the maximum number of participants is 500.  We therefore advise that you register for the conference as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
