The President PSC Fasihuddin (PSP) was selected for a Fellowship Award by the Australian National University (ANU), the subject of which was “Bridging the Research and Policy Divide”. The course was basically designed on the new concept of I2S (Implementation and Integration System), a new research-methodology developed by the famous scholar of ANU, Prof. Gabriele Bammer. The participants from Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, China and East Timor, worked on the subject-matter and devised excellent presentations on Case Studies and Policy Brief/Action Plans on a variety of issues, equally important for researchers and practitioners of Australia and the world at large. This programme is extremely important for Australian educational institutions to share their knowledge and experiences with the underdeveloped countries for peace and security across the globe. The interactive, reflective and experiential learning style of the programme was one of the fascinating aspects of the Fellowship. Meanwhile, Fasihuddin (PSP) was invited to the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) to present on the Development of Criminology in Pakistan and the Criminal Justice System of Pakistan. The AIC Director Dr. Adam Smith and the President of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology (ANZSC), Dr. Russell Smith and other scholars of the AIC appreciated the efforts and role of PSC in Pakistan. The PSC and ANZSC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for mutual cooperation and collaboration for promotion of criminology, research and police studies between the two countries. The President PSC was also invited by the Australian Federal Police to the Police Academy at Canberra to speak on the Causes of Terrorism/Radicalism in NWFP/Police in Combating Terrorism. The officers and under-training probationers attended the session. The AFP officers expressed their deep interest in and appreciation of the Pakistan Journal of Criminology as a research-based initiative of the PSC.
