UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION ON CRIME PREVENTION AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE (CCPCJ)
CHAIR: JULIE ANTãO
approximate committee size: 80 (double delegation)
The CCPCJ is a body consisting of 40 Member States that serves as the main policy-making commission of the United Nations for issues relating to crime and criminal justice. Member States collaborate to develop strategies for combating pressing issues in global crime, as well as ensuring that the international criminal justice system is operating fairly. In 2006 the CCPCJ was expanded to become the governing body of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), which focuses on issues such as illicit drug trade, crime, and terrorism. The CCPCJ platform offers Member States a forum to exchange strategies, information, expertise, and advice on how to better regulate and pinpoint areas of importance in advancing criminal justice structures. With increased globalization has come increased inter-connectedness to international crime and trafficking. Upon the emergence of new technologies that facilitate illegal activities, the role of the CCPCJ has shifted to address the problems associated with crime in the framework of the modern world.
