Training and Education in Developing Countries


UNICRI is currently expanding areas of cooperation in the Global South to encompass a range of training and educational activities at the post-graduate and professional level with the purpose of strengthening the capacity of the criminal justice system and the rule of law. UNICRI’s training expertise and ability to design courses, elaborate manuals and provide instruction, serve as means of reinforcing the legal field in developing countries.

2009-2010 marked the beginning of UNICRI assistance to the Lao PDR where UNICRI established a strong cooperation with the national Government in the field of capacity building and training for judicial personnel.

UNICRI is part of the UNDAF Action Plan 2012-2015 in the country and has also cooperated in the design of the Legal Sector Master Plan in line with the “One UN” approach.
