Abstract: The 2007 Annual Report outlines the main activities of UNAFEI for the year, which relate to its mission of contributing 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." In fulfilling this mission, UNAFEI has focused on the priority themes identified by the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice; and it is addressing urgent, contemporary 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). These themes are emphasized in UNAFEI's training courses, seminars, and research projects. Overviews of these training programs are presented in the Annual Report, along with UNAFEI's Work Program for 2008. The appendix lists UNAFEI staff and participants in various training courses and seminars. The Work Product of the 136th International Training Course contains three papers presented by visiting experts on the juvenile justice systems of South Africa and New Zealand, as well as a paper on advances in the assessment and treatment of juvenile offenders. Four participants' papers provide overviews of juvenile justice systems in Cameroon, Hong Kong, Tonga, and Vietnam. Three group reports address due process and appropriate dispositions for juvenile offenders, effective institutional treatment of juvenile offenders, and effective measures in the community-based treatment of juvenile offenders.
