Malta Download


The International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law (IIJ) is located in Malta and has a mission to deliver innovative and sustainable capacity-building through the implementation of counter-terrorism-related, rule of law-based good practices developed by the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) and other international and regional fora.

Since its inauguration in 2014, the IIJ has trained more than 8500 criminal justice practitioners through its interactive capacity-building workshops – in Malta and abroad – that enhance the competencies of parliamentarians, judges, prosecutors, police, prison and other criminal justice practitioners to address terrorism and related transnational criminal activities within a rule of law framework. The IIJ delivers capacity-building training tailored to the needs of the regions it serves, including North, West and East Africa; the Middle East; and select engagement in the Balkans, and Central, South and Southeast Asia. For more information on the IIJ, please visit the IIJ’s website at

In 2020, the IIJ launched an Academic Unit to provide in-depth courses to criminal justice practitioners aimed at filling critical knowledge gaps necessary for successfully countering terrorism and transnational crime. In addition, the Academic Unit has developed a forward-leaning and ambitious Research Agenda framed around the needs of practitioners. The results of this research will feed back into the work of the IIJ, with the Institute’s Academic and Programmatic Units being better able to guide the evidence-based development of good practices, thematic workshops and specialised training courses.


The IIJ is currently seeking a Data Analyst for its Counter-Terrorism Academic Curriculum (CTAC) courses, which have been running since late 2020. Up to this point, the IIJ has successfully delivered 16 course iterations, offered in Arabic, English, and French, involving practitioners from 32 countries spanning Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. The IIJ is keen on utilising the data collected from these up to 600 eCTAC and CTAC application forms of its selected or not selected applicants to analyse trends and needs, and inform improvements within the IIJ team to enrich our future proposals
