Second Regional Meeting on Crime and Criminal Justice Statistics: Development of crime and criminal justice statistics and their contribution for SDG monitoring in Asia Pacific

Building on the work of the "First Regional Meeting on Crime Statistics and Victimization Survey" which was held in Bangkok, Thailand 1-3 December 2014 which was organized in the framework of the "Roadmap to Improve the Quality and Availability of Crime Statistics at the National and International Level" that was endorsed by the UN Statistical Commission and the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ). 

The objectives of the meeting were:

  1. To review the recent progress of crime and criminal justice statistics collected, produced, and used by countries of the region;
  2. To discuss new statistical requirements deriving from SDGs and to understand how international standards, such as the International Classification of Crime for Statistical Purposes (ICCS), can support the countries in this process;
  3. To discuss the organizational and institutional arrangements to produce crime and criminal justice data, exchange information on national practices and review how the UN-CTS can better support countries;
  4. To discuss options on a possible Center of Excellence (CoE) on statistics on crime and criminal justice in Asia-Pacific.
