UN Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Discussion on Human Trafficking

14 April 2015

By John Morrison, Chief Executive, IHRB

Every five years policy-makers and practitioners working in crime prevention and criminal justice gather for the United Nations Crime Congress to help shape the agenda and standards of the UN on crime prevention and criminal justice. IHRB's Executive Director John Morrison was invited to speak at the Congress on the subject of trafficking and global supply chains. 

The Doha Congress in 2015, which marks the 60th anniversary of the Crime Congress, will consider how best to integrate crime prevention and criminal justice into the wider UN agenda.

The UN Crime Congress is the world's largest and most diverse gathering of governments, civil society, academia and experts in crime prevention and criminal justice. For 60 years the congresses have had an impact on criminal justice policies and strengthened international cooperation against the global threat of transnational organized crime.
