The Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) is the principal international policymaking body that focuses on crime prevention and criminal justice. Its current mandate is found in Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) resolution 1992/1 and General Assembly resolution 46/152. The General Assembly expanded its mandate in 2006, and CCPCJ now operates as governing body of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The Commission works on a variety of issues including international cooperation in criminal matters, measures to prevent and counter the smuggling of migrants, and violence against migrants, migrant workers and their families.
