You are most welcome to the United Nations African Institute for the Prevention of Crime and Treatment of Offenders (UNAFRI) web portal a one stop center for all information on the Prevention of Crime and Treatment of Offenders in the member countries, we believe your experience here will be one that will warrant your coming back over and over again.

UNAFRI, like its sister regional Institutes: HEUNI, ILANUD and UNAFEI; is mandated, inter alia, to promote the United Nations Crime Programme in Africa. UNAFRI is a vital regional mechanism to coordinate regional cooperation and harmonise the provision of needed technical assistance through tailored activities in the field of Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Systems in Africa.




As the window of United Nations Crime Prevention strategies and framework to Africa, the Institute derives its legitimacy for its operations from the needs of Member States in Crime Prevention, particularly as Crime has been noted to be a major impediment to sustained social development.
