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 will 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 .

'Ten stories just like this': spreading lawfulness and resistance to organized crime

Fifty secondary school children from a small town on the outskirts of Vienna sat mesmerized at UNODC headquarters this week as they watched, in the midst of an international audience of Member State delegates, a special English-language production of 'Dieci storie proprio cosi' (Ten stories just like this), the renowned play which was being performed for the first time outside of Italy. Recounting real stories of people whose relatives were victims of organized crime, actors engaged vivaciously with the audience.

This unique event, organized jointly by UNODC's Education for Justice (E4J) initiative and the Permanent Mission of Italy to the International Organizations in Vienna, was held during this week's 9th Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime.

E4J materials: an integral part of El Salvador's national school campaign on cybercrime prevention

Under the slogan 'Enjoy and take care of yourself on the Internet,' the Ministry of Education of El Salvador has launched a national campaign using UNODC educational materials. Developed by the Education for Justice (E4J) initiative, the materials included The Online Zoo book and modules designed to assist teachers in early media education as they explain to children the challenges of being online.

Audiovisual and printed materials for schools have been developed as part of the  campaign, which itself is based on six thematic areas: cybersecurity, Internet privacy, sexting, grooming, sextortion, and cyberbullying. The campaign aims to inform and prevent the main cybercrimes that affect children, and to emphasize the importance of preserving privacy and safety on the Internet.
