Due to the global situation related to COVID-19 and other related factors, the 14th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, scheduled to be held in Kyoto, Japan, April 20-27, 2020, has been postponed to March 7-12, 2021.
In its resolution 72/192, the General Assembly decided that the following issues would be considered in workshops:
(a) Evidence-based crime prevention: statistics, indicators and evaluation in support of successful practices
(b) Reducing reoffending: identifying risks and developing solutions
(c) Education and youth engagement as key to making societies resilient to crime
(d) Current crime trends, recent developments and emerging solutions, in particular new technologies as means and tools to combat crime
ICPC, which is part of the United Nations crime prevention and criminal justice programme network, contributed remotely to the preparation and organization of Workshop 1: Evidence-based crime prevention: statistics, indicators and evaluation in support of successful practices as part of a segment on comprehensive strategies for crime prevention towards social and economic development. This two-day workshop will enable participants to become more familiar with different approaches and best practices in evaluation, indicator production and statistical data collection to support evidence-based crime prevention.
