Welcome to the United Nations Crime and Justice Information Network, or UNCJIN, as mandated by United Nations Economic and Social Council resolution 1986/11. This electronic clearing-house represents the culmination of several years of incremental efforts coordinated by the United Nations Centre for International Crime Prevention, Vienna.

From 1995 to 1999,  UNCJIN has been hosted and supported by the Institute of Applied Computer Science and Information Systems at the University of Vienna. This new version of UNCJIN is under construction. The previous site will be available for some time.

On 15 November 2000, the General Assembly adopted the first UN Treaty against Transnational Organized Crime.
