14th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice has held in an innovative hybrid format amid pandemic restrictions opened in Kyoto with calls for renewing global cooperation against crime to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs and recover from the pandemic.

In the Kyoto Declaration adopted, governments agreed concrete actions to advance responses addressing crime prevention, criminal justice, rule of law and international cooperation. Member States will take commitments forward at the 30th session of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in Vienna in May.

Delivering his address, Mr. Guterres, highlighted the importance of the Crime Congress to tackling challenges arising in the global pandemic.

“Crime prevention, criminal justice and the rule of law have a key role in renewing the social contract between states and their populations.

“The agenda of the 14th Crime Congress targets the responses we need to strengthen crime prevention and criminal justice in the current crisis,” he said.

Organized with the support of United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, UNODC, the Crime Congress represents the world’s largest gathering of governments, international and regional organizations, civil society, experts and scholars focusing on crime prevention and criminal justice.
