IPO in the Alliance of NGOs on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice
We are pleased to announce that we are entering a much stronger new year as a serious and International Organization. We have just been informed that we have been accepted as a member of one of the important Organizations operating under the United Nations
The Alliance of NGOs on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (the Alliance) is a global network of international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council and active in crime prevention and criminal justice operating through the United Nation’s Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The Alliance is simultaneously a committee of the Conference of NGOs (CoNGO) and one of the three major civil society coalitions partnering with the UNODC.
The Alliance first formed in 1972 in New York City prior to the formation of UNODC.
The Alliance brings together a broad network of civil society organizations contributing to the achievement of security and justice for all. It ensures that civil society are recognized and heard in advancing the crime prevention and criminal justice agenda and in designing, implementing and measuring results of relevant policies everywhere.
Under the umbrella of the Alliance, cooperation among its members will be strengthened, reinforcing the expertise and vision of each of the members to add value and support the work of relevant international organizations, especially UNODC.
The Alliance encourages its members in playing a key role towards the achievement of the SDGs, and in particular Goal 16 to “Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.”
We thank once again the leadership of the Alliance for the opportunity to contribute with our knowledge and activities to the achievement of the goals of the Alliance and we promise that we will work even better in 2021.
