Annotation: A workshop focusing on extradition and international cooperation was organized during the Ninth United Nations (UN) Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders; drawing on a background paper prepared by the UN Secretariat, the workshop examined different approaches to establishing extradition relationships between member countries.
Abstract: The Ninth UN Congress urged the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) to convene an intergovernmental expert group to develop and promote mechanisms of international cooperation. Upon recommendation of the CCPCJ, the UN Economic and Social Council adopted a resolution to establish an intergovernmental expert group to increase the efficiency of extradition and related mechanisms of international cooperation in criminal matters. The resolution emphasized the provision of technical assistance in the development of bilateral and multilateral agreements based on UN model treaties and other sources and the drafting of model legislation. Specific actions taken by the UN Secretariat to convene the intergovernmental expert group are reviewed, as well as proposals for consideration by the CCPCJ on the work of the expert group and followup activities. 1 note
