Education for Justice

The Education for Justice (E4J) initiative seeks to prevent crime and promote a culture of lawfulness through education activities designed for primary, secondary and tertiary levels. These activities help educators teach the next generation to better understand and address problems that can undermine the rule of law and encourage students to actively engage in their communities and future professions in this regard. A set of products and activities for the primary and secondary levels have been developed in partnership with UNESCO.

A global jury of children votes online in UNODC-sponsored Takorama Film Festival

With an infinite curiosity and a predilection for voicing honest opinions, children tend to enjoy the mental exercise of ranking their favourite things. For the past two months, they were given the opportunity to watch short movies online and to vote on their preferences in the  Takorama Film Festival, designed by the association  Films pour enfants to engage children around the world with stimulating subjects and appealing animations.

This unique festival has accompanied children in various situations of COVID-19 lockdown and social distancing confinement, exposing them to artistic contributions which tackle solidarity, tolerance and respect for others - subjects which form an integral part of the work of  Education for Justice, an initiative of  UNODC's Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration.

Model United Nations

Model United Nations (MUN) conferences offer a popular way to learn about the United Nations' mandate areas and to give tomorrow's leaders an insight into negotiating at the international level. E4J developed a Resource Guide to support those who organize MUN conferences to incorporate issues from UNODC mandate areas into their conferences.
