In this oral statement to the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in May 2017, PRI introduced our new report, Global Prison Trends 2017, published in collaboration with the Thailand Institute of Justice. The report includes a Special Focus section dedicated to the links between the Sustainable Development Goals and criminal justice.
The oral statement provides brief examples of how implementing the SDGs relates to people in prison, and notes that limited consideration has been paid so far to the impact of criminal justice policies on development. In this regard, PRI welcomes efforts by UNODC and Member States to revise the collection of data on crime trends and operations of criminal justice systems to support new data requirements for SDGs monitoring.
