To obtain a hard copy of any of the above documents listed below, please contact Emil Wandzilak, Documentation Officer, Centre for International Crime Prevention, P.O. Box 500, Vienna International Centre, A-1400 Vienna, AUSTRIA, or send an email request to ewandzilak@cicp.un.or.at.

Please provide Mr. Wandzilak with the full title and, where possible, the document number of the desired report. In addition, please provide your full postal address. Documents will be sent via surface mail.

The documentation for the Congress itself will consist of the working papers and reports prepared by the United Nations Secretariat on the different agenda items, documents for the workshops, the reports of the regional preparatory meetings, background papers and other relevant submissions. The Global Report on Crime and Justice will also be available. Government delegations are encouraged to submit national reports and statements on the Congress topics. The specialized agencies and other United Nations entities may provide written contributions on aspects of the agenda within their purview. Other intergovernmental organizations may also make appropriate submissions. Non-governmental organizations may submit statements in their areas of competence, as may other observers and individual experts.

According to rule 60 of the provisional rules of procedure of the Congress written contributions related to the work of the Congress submitted by Governments, specialized agencies and other United Nations entities, non-governmental organizations and individual experts shall be distributed by the secretariat to all delegations in the quantities and in the languages in which the statements are made available to the secretariat for distribution, provided that a statement submitted on behalf of a non-governmental organization shall be on a subject in which it has a special competence.

In order to increase the value of these contributions in achieving scientifically valid, action-oriented Congress results, they should, wherever possible, include relevant research findings, examples of best practices, recommendations for follow-up action, and indications of ways in which the party concerned could help to further common objectives and joint strategies with the United Nations and other stake-holders. Assessments of existing needs could be accompanied by proposals for meeting them, including the United Nations role in so doing and any proposed help.
