Review paper by Italy and the Netherlands
The Bureau reviewed justice and crime statistics in February 2006 focusing on finding ways to resolve the identified problems and to propose follow-up actions to improve international work on crime statistics.
Outcome of the review
A CES/United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Task Force published a Manual on Victimization Surveys, endorsed by the Conference in June 2009.
In October 2009, the Bureau set up a UNECE/UNODC Task Force on classifying crimes. As a result, the Conference endorsed the Principles and framework for an international classification of crimes for statistical purposes in June 2012.
In 2013, the UN Statistical Commission approved a plan to finalize an international classification of crimes for statistical purposes by 2015 using the results of the CES/UNODC Task Force’s work.
