The establishment of a robust legal framework is a precondition to an effective criminal justice response to intentional and illicit conduct involving nuclear or other radioactive material.
As part of its programme to prevent and suppress chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear terrorism, UNODC launched in June 2022 the eLearning module on the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism (ICSANT).
The module will be available in all UN official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish), as well as Portuguese.
The module, a self-paced learning tool, examines the key provisions of ICSANT and is intended to promote awareness of the need to adhere to this Convention and to incorporate its requirements into national legislation. Upon successful completion, participants receive a personalized certificate.
The development of the module was made possible thanks to funding by the European Union under the project “Union support for the universalization and effective implementation of the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism”.
The module is available on the UNODC eLearning platform upon registration.
