IAP, a non-governmental and non-political body, is the only worldwide organisation of prosecutors. It has over 144 Organisational members – comprising associations of prosecutors, prosecution agencies and crime prevention agencies. Together with its individual membership IAP represents over 200,000 prosecutors in more than 140 countries/jurisdictions.
Established in June 1995 at the United Nations offices in Vienna, the IAP was formally inaugurated in September 1996 at its first general meeting in Budapest. The rapid growth in serious transnational crime, particularly drug trafficking, money laundering and fraud led to the creation of the IAP. The need was felt for greater international co-operation between prosecutors and for greater speed and efficiency in mutual assistance, asset tracking and other international co-operative measures.
The IAP is committed to setting and raising standards of professional conduct and ethics for Prosecutors worldwide; promoting the rule of law, fairness, impartiality and respect for human rights and improving international co-operation to combat crime. Its mission is to be a world authority for Prosecutors in the conduct of criminal prosecutions and associated matters and to operate as an organisation of international repute and referral.
