Session 66: CH3 -> The American Society of Criminology's Special Consultative Status at the United Nations (Sponsored by the Division of International Criminology)
Time: 2:40PM to 4:10 PM on Wednesday, November 19
Place: Governors Square 10
Session Chair: Nancy Grosselfinger
In July of 2002 the american Society of Criminology was granted special Consultative Status as an NGO to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations. The ASC thus joins more than 2,000 other nongovernmental organizations who regularly contribute, as informed observers, to United Nations social and economic policymaking. The Division of International Criminology coordinates the ASC's representation. This workshop is designed as (1) an informational forum whereby interested ASC members can learn about the structure of UN decisionmaking and the role of NGOs, and (2) a strategy session whereby all involved can contribute to organize the ways in which the ASC can be an effective NGO at the UN. Specific reports will be given on the most recent meetings of the UN Crime Commission, ISPAC (International Scientific and Professional Advisory Council) and the Alliance of NGOs on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, and plans for the Congress in 2005 in Bangkok, Thailand will be discussed.
