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 is being developed in partnership with UNESCO.

New Delhi, India / 9 December 2019. Observing the International Anti-Corruption Day 2019, UNODC South Asia engaged with over 5000 students and educators from Delhi, Gurugram and Bengaluru to strengthen youth action against corruption.

The world is not stationary: it is forever-changing, and we are changing with it. The rule of law does not necessarily mean that we will be utilizing a perfect system of laws which can be applicable anytime, anywhere; new laws are written, some laws become obsolete, and others are adapted. Ideally, in a perfect world, the rule of law should guarantee a continuous pursuit of our evolution on what is just or unjust, what is right or wrong, and what is moral or immoral. Rule of law and its promotion means that despite the system's imperfections, we try to make a world a better place where we have equal opportunities for freedom, education, and life itself, and where justice can actually be served.
Academic conferences present scholars with opportunities not just to exchange important ideas, but also to question and challenge them; through this dynamic process, theories are worked and reworked, eventually forming a solid framework that applies in practice, beyond theory. For the Education for Justice (E4J) initiative, a component of the Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration, such interactive conferences are an essential step in UNODC's drive to fulfil the internationally-agreed Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG16 for peace, justice and strong institutions which falls under UNODC's remit.

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.
