12th Crime Congress

About the Congress

The Twelfth United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice is a global forum bringing together a diverse gathering of policymakers and practitioners in crime prevention and criminal justice.

Between 12 and 19 April 2010, government representatives are meeting in Salvador, Brazil, to discuss a wide range of issues, including youth and crime, smuggling of migrants and trafficking in persons, money-laundering, corruption, cybercrime and violence against migrants. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, based in Vienna, acts as secretariat of the Congress. For the official agenda, click here.

In addition, over 70 so-called “ancillary” meetings will be held by experts from research institutes affiliated with the United Nations, non-governmental organizations, think tanks and other entities on issues related to the crime prevention, criminal justice and the rule of law.
