MMUN’s founder Judith Cunningham will be presenting at the E4J International High-Level Conference “Education for the Rule of Law. Inspire. Change. Together.” thas is organized as part of UNODC’s Education for Justice (E4J) initiative.
The Education for Justice /E4J) initiative is an innovative and comprehensive educational initiative designed to support educators teaching the next generation to better understand and address problems that can undermine the rule of law. The initiative is part of the Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration, which was adopted by the Thirteenth United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in 2015. The declaration recognizes the fundamental importance of universal education for children and youth, for the prevention of crime terrorism and corruption. Moreover, it acknowledges the importance of people-centered approaches in promoting peaceful, corruption-free and inclusive societies for sustainable development.
From October 7-9, 2019, at the Vienna International Centre, over 200 stakeholders from the worlds of education and justice, will discuss:
– How education for the rule of law can address today’s shared justice challenges;
– How educators can offer and cultivate a new, multidimensional crime prevention approach, and;
– How governments (ministries of education, justice or interior), educators/academia, the United Nations and others can advance collective actions and forge partnerships to tackle global and local challenges.
MMUN is excited to discuss issues related to social justice at this event.
