About 120 youth leaders from diverse regions across the world joined the 1st Global Youth Forum for a Culture of Lawfulness, organized by the Ministry of Justice, Japan 🇯🇵 and supported by UNODC 🇺🇳 on 9-10 October, as a follow up to the 14th UN Crime Congress. Focusing on the role of young people in achieving an inclusive and safe society, the forum emerged as a hub of new ideas and perspectives, with the enthusiastic participation of the young delegates.

Our Communications Officer Samarth Pathak moderated engaging deliberations between the participants on crime prevention and criminal justice in the post COVID19 world. A range of issues were covered in the dialogues, including gender-based violence, cybercrime and misuse of digital technology, sexual violence, social reintegration of prisoners, mental health, socio-economic inequality and discrimination. Some truly interesting ideas were also presented during the course of discussions, emphasising the need for tech-driven, youth-led, institution-centered and network-based responses to strengthen crime, and promote peace and the rule of law.

As nations build back from the pandemic, harnessing this youth agency is critical!

How to Use #Ridesharing Vehicles Safely during #COVID19 Pandemic
according to unodc statement drug user is patient.. in my country drug user punished 2 to 7 years jail.. depent on their gratification/money... drug dealer not arrested... we need statement from unodc thanks a lot for your attention..
Indeed great work being done by UNODC ROSA. On the anti human trafficking front, a new initiative has been launched with associating the youth in the Colleges under the banner of Anti Human Trafficking Clubs (AHTC). It is gaining great momentum. In fact, AHTC is a student version of the nine AHTU (Anti Human Trafficking Units) that UNODC set up across India during 2007 and thereupon, Govt of India has replicated to more than 300 Districts across India. A media clipping on this is given below:
