Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice

18 May 2015 - 22 May 2015

The 24th session of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice will be held 18-22 May 2015 In Vienna. The Commission guides the activities of the UN in the field of crime prevention and criminal justice. It also reviews UN standards and norms in this area, including their use and application by Member States. It takes action through resolutions and decisions.

This meeting will hold thematic discussion on the follow-up to the Thirteenth United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.


As part of the Secretariat’s efforts to reduce expenditure and limit environmental impact through the digitization of conference materials and publications, only a limited number of pre-session documents will be available at the session venue. Each delegation will receive a single, complete set of the documents in the language of its choice. Delegates are therefore kindly requested to bring their own copies of the pre-session documents to the meeting. These documents can be downloaded here.
