This morning the UNODC secretariat agreed to distribute to delegates at the Congress a recommendation, prepared by the World Society of Victimology (WSV), in support of victims’ rights. The document will be made available to Member States as an “NGO paper”.

Michael O’Connell, Vice-President of WSV, says: “it’s the 25th anniversary of the Declaration of Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power and the 55th anniversary of the United Nations crime congresses. The World Society of Victimology thinks it is time for UNODC to consider how the rights of all victims might be strengthened further.”
