In high-profile investigations, when the suspect pool is very large, resources are unduly strained unless the pool can be narrowed down to the most likely offenders. The Persons of Interest Priority Assessment Tool (POIPAT) provides an objective and consistent means of establishing a priority ranking of suspects or persons of interest in any investigation. Created and used correctly, the tool can determine if any suspect/POI should be considered a high, medium, or low investigative priority, saving time and resources and potentially saving additional victims. Criminal Major Case Management: Persons of Interest Priority Assessment Tool (POIPAT) describes how to set up a POIPAT system for any investigation where there are numerous POIs and limited resources. Using the unsolved Jack the Ripper mystery as a sample case study, it walks readers through the steps of creating and using the POIPAT system. The book begins by providing an overview of offender profiling and the basic considerations for developing elements for a POIPAT. It explains the Element Weighting Chart (EWC) and discusses how many points each element should be weighted based on its level of importance. The author describes how to determine what point totals constitute a high, medium, or low priority so that police managers can know how best to direct their resources. He also discusses tracking how POIs are eliminated through an elimination coding system, thereby avoiding potential duplication and allowing investigators to hone in on the person most likely to have committed the crime. Finally, the book uses the POIPAT system to draw conclusions about some of the best-known suspects who were most likely to have been the real Jack the Ripper. Seeing how the technique is used in a real case, investigators will discover how to effectively create unique POIPATs for their own cases. The included CD-ROM contains a template that can be modified for any type of investigation and a number of additional tools and guides.

This report analyzes how closer regional connectivity and economic integration between South Asia and Southeast Asia can benefit both regions, with a focus on the role played by infrastructure and public policies in facilitating this process. It examines major developments in South Asian–Southeast Asian trade and investment, economic cooperation, the role of economic corridors, and regional cooperation initiatives. In particular, it identifies significant opportunities for strengthening these integration efforts as a result of the recent opening up of Myanmar in political, economic, and financial terms. This is particularly the case for land-based transportation—highways and railroads—and energy trading. The report’s focus is on connectivity in a broad sense, covering both hardware and software, including investment in infrastructure, energy trading, trade facilitation, investment financing, and support for national and regional policies.

Neoliberal economics have emerged in the post-Cold War era as the predominant ideological tenet applied to the development of countries in the global south. For much of the global south, however, the promise that markets will bring increased standards of living and emancipation from tyranny has been an empty one. Instead, neoliberalisation has increased the gap between rich and poor and unleashed a firestorm of social ills. This book deals with the post-conflict geographies of violence and neoliberalisation in Cambodia. Applying a geographical analysis to contemporary Cambodian politics, the author employs notions of neoliberalism, public space, and radical democracy as the most substantive components of its theoretical edifice. He argues that the promotion of unfettered marketisation is the foremost causal factor in the country’s inability to consolidate democracy following a United Nations sponsored transition. The book demonstrates Cambodian perspectives on the role of public space in Cambodia's process of democratic development and explains the implications of violence and its relationship with neoliberalism. Taking into account the transition from war to peace, authoritarianism to democracy, and command economy to a free market, this book offers a critical appraisal of the political economy in Cambodia.

In October 2013, over 400 people lost their lives in two shipwrecks close to the Italian island of Lampedusa. While these two events were highly publicized, sadly they are not isolated incidents; the International Organization for Migration (IOM) estimates that in 2013 and 2014 nearly 6,500 migrants lost their lives in border regions around the world. Because many deaths occur in remote areas and are never reported, counts of deaths fail to capture the full number of lives lost. Despite recognition that actions must be taken to stop more unnecessary deaths, as yet there remains very little information on the scale of the problem. The vast majority of governments do not publish numbers of deaths, and counting lives lost is largely left to civil society and the media. Drawing upon data from a wide range of sources from different regions of the world, Fatal Journeys: Tracking Lives Lost during Migration investigates how border-related deaths are documented, who is documenting them, and what can be done to improve the evidence base to encourage informed accountability, policy and practice. Regionally focused chapters present most recent statistics and address a number of key questions regarding how migrant border-related deaths are enumerated

Trafficking in persons is a serious crime that affects the human rights, dignity and integrity of all its victims including women, men, and children in the Association of Southeast Asia Nation (ASEAN) region. ASEAN has made efforts to fight human trafficking through inter alia the establishment of regional counter-human trafficking laws and human rights bodies to establish best norms and practices for its member countries. Nevertheless, the International Labour Organization (ILO) recently declared that there are more than 11.7 million forced labor victims in the Asia-Pacific region encompassing the biggest concentration of forced labour victims in the world.

After 3 years of historic reforms, Myanmar has entered a pivotal stage in its socioeconomic development. Natural, cultural, and demographic advantages are positioning the country for long-term success, but many challenges and potential pitfalls lie ahead. This publication examines how to leverage the opportunities and offers solutions to the challenges. For Myanmar to achieve its economic transition, considerable investments will have to be made in infrastructure and developing human capital, and progress made on building institutional capacity, a regulatory environment for the private sector to flourish, and a modern finance sector. In all reform efforts, the government should embrace good governance, and strive for inclusive, environmentally sustainable, and regionally connected growth. Ensuring that the benefits of growth are shared broadly and regionally balanced stands out in a crowded development agenda.
