PNI Newsletter

PNI Newsletter



The United Nations Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Programme Network (PNI) consists of the United Nations on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and 18 institutes and entities around the world. The mission of the PNI is to assist the international community in strengthening cooperation in crime prevention and criminal justice on the global, regional and sub-regional levels, within the framework of the United Nations Crime Programme. In January 2022, the members of the PNI decided to publish a “PNI Newsletter” as a way of sharing information on the contributions of the Network, in a way that could benefit a wide range of international and regional stakeholders as well as the general public. The Newsletter also serves to promote cooperation within the Network as well as with UN entities and with national and international stakeholders, through the dissemination of information and the sharing of knowledge. The Newsletter will be published twice a year, in the spring and the autumn.

This first issue features two articles on the UN Crime Programme and the PNI, by Dr. Matti Joutsen, Special Advisor of the Thailand Institute of Justice and former Director of European Institute of Crime Prevention and Control (HEUNI), as well as an overview of PNI publications related to cybercrime, which is the theme of the 31st session of the UN Crime Commission. This issue also focuses on the PNI contribution to the UN Crime Programme and includes updates on activities undertaken during 2021 and early 2022 by the Network as well as by individual members of the PNI in the implementation of the Kyoto Declaration. In order to provide a closer look at individual institutes, each issue of the Newsletter will include interviews with PNI Directors.
