The Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice is composed of 40 countries and is one of the functional commissions of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The Commission creates international policies on crime prevention and criminal justice and coordinates its activities. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) assists member states’ implementation of crime prevention, criminal justice and criminal law, and fulfills the missions that the Commission asks for through its crime program. They have a particular emphasis on measures against cross-border organized crime, corruption, terrorism and human trafficking. The strategies are comprised of the two branches of international cooperation and support for international activities. The UNODC also strive to promote cultures based on integrity and respect for law and encourage civil society to participate in the prevention of crime, corruption and fight against them (for further information, please refer to the website of the United Nations Information Centre).
