The United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) was established in 1968 in an effort to combat issues of crime prevention and criminal justice among the United Nation, civil society and national governments . UNICRI focuses on three overarching themes of security sector reform, access to justice, and peace building efforts. It develops research and training for these areas through “four main working areas (i) Global Crimes Unit (ii) Security Governance and Counter Terrorism Laboratory, (iii) Justice Reform and (iv) Post-Graduate Training" . UNICRI’s post-graduate training offer programs sensitive to gender concerns. The courses focus on gender in crime prevention and gender mainstreaming and empowerment in post-conflict situations .
According to PeaceWomen's research, UNICRI has not published any work on Women, Peace and Security, or shared policy documents and action plans.
