Adopted at the conclusion of the 13th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, the Doha Declaration highlights the importance of education as a tool to preventing crime and corruption. It emphasizes that education for children and youth is fundamental in promoting a culture that supports the rule of law, crime prevention and criminal justice. In support of this, the Education for Justice (E4J) initiative – under the Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration – has been developed to create and disseminate education materials in UNODC mandated areas of crime prevention and criminal justice across the primary, secondary and tertiary education levels. Online tools and academic resources are made available free of charge, while workshops, conferences and symposia will be organized for teachers and academics to learn and exchange ideas and research.
In 2018 and 2019 CSPL reached out to private and public educational institutions in the Cayman Islands to raise awareness of this programme and encourage adoption into the curricula at primary, secondary and tertiary schools. E4J resources are free! For more information contact the CSPL or visi the E4J website.
