This year again, the ECOWAS Commission has been very available to receive the juniors experts who have manifested a curiosity and a growing interest in ECOWAS instruments and activities in the fight against transnational crime. A part from the department of Political Affairs, Peace and Security, the one in charge of immigration and free movement and finally the department of drug trafficking, the junior experts had the opportunity to visit and interact with the administration of the ECOWAS Parliament and the judges of the Community Court of Justice. Contributions from international organizations such as UNODC among other and also from the National Defense College of Nigeria (NDC), as a center of excellence for training of the ECOWAS have allowed junior experts to better understand and appreciate the potential role of external actors in the fight against transnational crime and its many facets that are emerging and spreading more and more in West Africa.
