About the book
This volume presents a number of approaches to improve the collection, reporting and analysis of crime and criminal justice statistics at the international level. It describes how the development of indicators on specific forms of crime such as trafficking in persons, smuggling of migrants and corruption can better our understanding of these criminal activities and enhance global efforts to prevent and control them. It also addresses how to improve the availability and comparability of crime and criminal justice statistics regarding a particular crime type (trafficking in persons), a specific criminal justice field (juvenile justice) or a particular geographic area (Europe). Finally, it presents ongoing efforts to develop an international crime classification system.
