International Center for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy

( ICCLR & CJP)

 

The International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy (ICCLR&CJP) is an independent, nonprofit institute founded in 1991 and formally affiliated with the United Nations. The Centre's mission is to promote the rule of law, human rights, democracy and good governance, by contributing to local, national and international efforts to support law reform initiatives and to improve the administration of criminal justice. It focuses on technical co-operation, research, training and advisory services in the field of criminal law, criminal justice policy and crime prevention.

Together with the UNODC, the Centre has been working on development of the reporting procedures and tools on implementation of the United Nations Conventions against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) and against Corruption (UNCAC). The UNODC and the Centre have proposed to develop omnibus survey software as an innovative and user-friendly solution to review the compliance with both Conventions.

The Centre has assisted the UNODC in developing a Guide to Legislative Reforms necessary to bring the national legislation in compliance with the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime. The Centre supports UNODC in developing a set of reporting guidelines for consideration by the Conference of Parties to the UNTOC.

The Centre cooperates with other PNI partners. In delivering technical assistance in Latin America the Centre collaborates with ILANUD, the Centre's PNI counter-part in the region.
