The series of European Colloquia on Crime and Criminal Policy was launched in 1988 by Professor Roger Hood at Oxford University. Ten years later, HEUNI had the pleasure to organize the VI Colloquium in Helsinki. In planning the agenda, HEUNI decided to focus on five topics that are to be dealt with in the framework of the Tenth United Nations Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders, to be held in Vienna on 10-17 April 2000. The Congress will feature four workshops, dealing, respectively, with combatting corruption; crimes related to the computer network; community involvement in crime prevention; and women in the criminal justice system. In addition, HEUNI decided that one topic should be the development of indicators of crime trends and the operation of criminal justice.
