Translation and interpretation
At the conclusion of the 13th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice held in Qatar, the Doha Declaration was adopted. Calling for the integration of crime prevention and criminal justice into the wider agenda of the United Nations, and endorsed by the General Assembly, the Doha Declaration has at its centre the understanding that the rule of law and sustainable development are interrelated and mutually reinforcing. To put the Doha Declaration into reality, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime - with the financial support of the State of Qatar - launched a Global Programme aimed at helping countries achieve a sustainable impact on crime prevention, criminal justice, corruption prevention, and the rule of law. The programme promotes peaceful, corruption-free and inclusive societies for sustainable development, through a people-centred approach that provides access to justice for everyone and builds effective and accountable institutions at all levels. The E4J initiative seeks to prevent crime and promote a culture of lawfulness through education activities designed for primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education.
