“It is important for us to acknowledge the work of this renowned research institution that promotes a community of justice fostering human rights principles and the rule of law. The extensive involvement of the TIJ’s members has led this institute to become a key player in crime prevention and criminal justice strategies on a global scale, and by fostering important partnerships, it has succeeded in evolving and innovating emerging trends in crime prevention and criminal justice. We are confident that the TIJ will continue to fulfill its mission for many years to come.” – Ann Champoux, Director General at the ICPC
