OBJECTIVE

The International Conference on Governance, Crime and Justice Statistics seeks to promote dialogue among the stakeholders involved in the production of statistical information on crime and criminal justice, including researchers, policy makers, and other data users.
The aim is to increase the availability, quality and use of data to improve the analysis and design of public policies.

TARGET AUDIENCE

  • Representatives from National Statistical Offices and other sectoral agencies responsible for the collection, analysis and dissemination of statistics on crime, victimization and justice.
  • Members of institutions that develop, monitor and evaluate crime prevention policies and the functioning of the criminal justice system.
  • Research institutes, universities, civil society organizations, and other institutions interested in statistics on governance, crime, public safety, victimization and justice.

CONTEXT

The Conference stems from the vision of the “Roadmap to improve the quality and availability of crime statistics at the national and international level”, jointly approved by the UN Statistical Commission and the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.
Conducting such an event every two years brings the opportunity to discuss and track the progress on the Roadmap’s pillars:
• Methodological development.
• Institutional capacity building.
• Improvement of the national, regional and international data collection.
