Annotation: This report presents the provisional agenda, discussion topics, and proposed organization of work for the United Nations Economic and Social Council's Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice at its 16th session (April 23-27, 2007).
Abstract: The Economic and Social Council approved the provisional agenda for the 16th session of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, with the understanding that at its intersession meeting, the Commission would examine and finalize the provisional agenda and documentation. During the intersessional period, the Commission decided to establish an informal, openended working group to consider the structure and focus of the thematic discussions, as well as to make recommendations on the provisional agenda to be considered at an intersessional meeting. On November 28, 2006, an intersessional meeting of the Commission considered the recommendations of the informal working group and decided that the thematic discussions would be introduced by a small number of panelists and determined the themes of the thematic discussion. The discussion themes selected were crime prevention and criminal justice responses to urban crime, including gang-related activities, and effective crime prevention and criminal justice responses to combat sexual exploitation of children. Another item on the provisional agenda was world crime trends and responses, specifically, the integration and coordination of efforts by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and by member states in the field of crime prevention and criminal justice. Other agenda items were the use and application of United Nations standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice, policy directives for and strengthening the crime program of the UNODC, and followup to the 11th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice and preparations for the 12th Congress.
