ICSANT Training Manual

The manual on fictional cases related to offences under ICSANT is focused on article 2 of the Convention, which sets forth the criminalization requirements that need to be transposed by States parties in their national legislation. The various types of conduct that States parties are to criminalize are examined in detail, together with their salient features. The manual presents a series of scenarios in the form of: (a) a concise description of a fictional case focused on a distinctive feature of the Convention; (b) a series of questions; and (c) an analysis of the case in the form of answers to the questions posed.

The analysis of fictional cases is designed to illustrate the main elements of the offences established by the Convention, with a view to familiarizing the reader with the wide array of acts which constitute a crime under ICSANT.
