The International Conference on Governance, Crime and Justice Statistics seeks to foster more active exchange of knowledge and best practices, as well as discussing methodologies and strengthening capacities in the national statistical offices and law enforcement institutions.

The aim is to increase the availability, quality and use of data to inform evidence based policy making.


  • 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
  • Experts from research institutes, universities, think-tanks, and other institutions interested in collecting, analyzing and disseminating statistics relevant to crime, victimization and justice.
  • Persons from UN agencies, international non-governmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, and civil society organizations.


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.
