Conference Panel at the European Society of Criminology - Transforming Higher Education for the Future through strengthened cooperation between academia and the United Nations

 

In September UNODC convened a multi-disciplinary panel of academic experts at the annual conference of the European Society of Criminology to showcase the transformative potential of teaching on human rights, the rule of law, and ethics and integrity. 

Achieving peaceful, safe, inclusive and sustainable societies globally demands collaborative approaches that transcend disciplinary and institutional silos. It is in this context that the Doha Declaration highlights the fundamental role for education in promoting a culture that supports the rule of law, crime prevention and criminal justice. The UNODC Education for Justice initiative (E4J) has embraced the vital role of higher education in this endeavour.

Showcasing the impact of curricula developed in close cooperation with academics from across the globe, this UNODC panel demonstrated the impact of multi-sectoral partnerships and the E4J network of academics in action!
