Summary

In 2009, the Office endeavoured to engage key Azerbaijani Government officials who have policymaking and operational responsibility for government agencies concerned with national stability, security and public safety issues. The result was a number of activities related to counter-terrorism and combating organised crime.

In order to implement the planned activities, the Office cooperated with a number of OSCE participating States and other OSCE missions, such as the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office on the "Comprehensive and Good Governance Approaches to Counter-Terrorism" project, the former OSCE Mission to Georgia on the "Transitional Institutional Support Programme" project at the Georgia- Azerbaijan border and the Turkish National Police on the "Cross border workshops" (topics: falsified documents, human trafficking etc) at the Azerbaijani-Turkish border.

This project aimed at sharing relevant law-enforcement and security agencies the best practices of OSCE pS on countering terrorism and combating organised crime.

The following activities were conducted in the framework of the project:

  • A one-day workshop on International Bomb Data Center Working Group for relevant agencies
  • Facilitation of Azerbaijani Government participation in a meeting of the International Bomb Data Centre (IBDC) Working Group meeting
  • Training on installation and implementation of IMS software
  • A one-day training for the State Border Service and State Customs Committee in Azerbaijani-Turkish border in Sadarak/Dilucu
