Abstract: UNAFEI's 2001 Annual Report describes the main activities of the organization in 2001 and the work program planned for 2002. The goal of UNAFEI is to contribute to sound social development in Asia and the Pacific region by promoting regional cooperation in the field of crime prevention and criminal justice through training and research. The main themes and topics for its training courses, seminars, and research projects are urgent problems in the administration of criminal justice in the region, especially problems generated by rapid socioeconomic change, e.g., transnational organized crime, corruption, economic and computer crime, and the reintegration of prisoners into society. An outline of UNAFEI's work program for 2002 encompasses descriptions of training events, technical cooperation, and other activities. Papers presented by country representatives at the 120th International Senior Seminar focus on the responsibilities and structures of criminal investigations and prosecutions in their respective countries, as well as cooperation between police and prosecutors. Papers included in this report address criminal investigations and prosecutions in Germany, South Korea, Pakistan, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, and Tanzania. Group reports pertain to the effective administration of the police system, cooperation between the police and prosecutors, and effective case screening by prosecutors or other competent agencies.
