The launch will take place during the 12th UN Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice which takes place every 5 years, and is hosted this year by the Government of Brazil in the City of Salvador, from the 12th‐19th of April 2010. ICPC will present its report in the presence of UNODC representatives and government officials from Brazil, Canada and France.
Providing a large panorama of prevention in the world, the Report 2010 particularly examines the impact of migration, organized crime and substance abuse on community safety. It highlights the importance of prevention and security governance frameworks, capacity building measures of different sectors of the community, and evaluating programmes and strategies. It also emphasizes social and education approaches to crime prevention among vulnerable populations.
