UN Congress postponed - new dates to be decided soon.
The Secretariat of the 14 Congress issued the following letter on 20 March 2020:
We regret to announce that, due to the worldwide situation related to COVID-19 and related factors, the 14th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, scheduled to be held in Kyoto, Japan on 20-27 April 2020, will be postponed to an as yet undetermined later date. We expect that the General Assembly will formalize the postponement soon. UNODC and the Host Country Japan are in consultation on possible new dates and are working closely with the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, which serves as preparatory body for the Congress. Additional information will be shared in due course.
Updated information, including the new dates of the Congress, various deadlines and other changes made eventually, will be announced in due course on our website: www.crimecongress.org.
