Abstract: Established in Japan in 1961, the main goal of the UNAFEI is to contribute to responsible social development in Asia and the Pacific region by promoting regional cooperation, training, and research in crime prevention and criminal justice. The principle priority of the UNAFEI work programs consist of international training courses and seminars where participants from different areas of criminal justice meet to discuss pressing criminal justice problems and research from different perspectives. The annual report describes the various training courses, including the 130th International Training Course on “Integrated Strategies to Confront Domestic Violence and Child Abuse,” which is included in this Resource Material Series. Other programs of the UNAFEI include technical cooperation work, a comparative research project on combating high-tech crime, and public lecture programs. Following the annual report, Part 2 of the Resource Material Series presents the work product of the 130th International Training Course, which consists of five visiting expert papers, four participant papers, and three reports of the course. These papers focus on integrated strategies to combat domestic violence and child abuse in British Columbia, India, and the Philippines. The World Health Organization also considers how to prevent domestic violence and child abuse using a rights-based public health approach. Participants’ papers focus on discussing the state of the criminal justice response to domestic violence and child abuse in Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Zimbabwe. Part 3 of the Resource Material Series presents the Seventh Special Training Course on Corruption Control in Criminal Justice. The four papers presented in this section focus on comprehensive corruption investigation strategies in Hong Kong, New South Wales, and Australia. A report of the general discussion is also provided that considers the weaknesses of anti-corruption measures and their possible solutions. Figures, tables, footnotes, appendix
