Programme aim Borders around the world have become increasingly recognised, not just for their ability to generate government revenue and deal with immigration issues, but as a place to detect and disrupt serious crime. This includes the threat of terrorism, mass-migration, illicit entry and human trafficking. All of these issues are becoming an increasing political priority for national governments and international organisations and there is growing public pressure to improve effectiveness. These challenges cause governments to question if best use of the border is being made, to raise revenue, control immigration and drive down crime. Is multi-agency working a reality? How can migration be controlled? Are threat assessments being effectively used? How can revenue be increased? How can serious crime be detected and disrupted? What assistance can technology provide? How can borders be used to prevent terrorism? This programme aims to answer these questions in a structured manner that better equips senior managers to cope with the multiple issues faced at a border. It will be based on case studies of experiences worldwide, but particularly in the UK and will be delivered by leading experts with experience of implementing these issues and systems in a range of environments and with a variety of different resources.
