Crime and justice are no longer simply local or national issues; they are global concerns which require careful study and concerted international action. Meeting this demand, the Global Report on Crime and Justice is a synthesis of research and data gathered by the United Nations Centre forInternational Crime Prevention. In addressing the nature of crime, the operations of national criminal justice systems, and the state of crime prevention from a cross-national perspective, it brings together in published form for the first time a wealth of information about crime and justice fromthe Member States of the United Nations. It presents crime trends and operations of criminal justice systems on a comparative basis. Drawing on numerous sources from within the United Nations and beyond, it examines emerging developments in crime and justice around the world. The report reveals agreat diversity of experiences. Special emphasis is placed on comparing both the different ways countries approach crime problems and the shared perspectives that exist between countries and regions. The Global Reprot provides critical analyses and useful raw data in an easily understandableformat.
