Doha, Qatar, April 8, 2015. The State of Qatar took an unprecedented step
to involve the youth in the global fight against crime by hosting the First
Doha Youth Forum on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice from 7 to 9 April
2015.

"Qatar believes that the rule of law is an important element in development
and sustainability, and it's the desired path to build the world we want,"
said HE Sheikha Alia Ahmed bin Saif Al Thani, Qatar's Permanent UN
Representative. "This cannot be achieved without the youth's participation in
the decision making process."

Qatar Minister of Youth and Sports, HE Salah bin Ghanem bin Nasser Al Ali,
said: "This Forum is the first of its kind in the history of international
conferences in general, and conferences on crime prevention and criminal
justice in particular. It's a purely Qatari initiative, through which Qatar
contributes to international dialogue about issues and challenges facing
humanity."

The Youth Forum was organised by The State of Qatar, Qatar Foundation for
Education, Science and Community Development (QF) and the United Nations
Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

It precedes the 13thedition of the United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention
and Criminal Justice in Qatar from April 12 to 19. The UN Congress has been
held every 5 years since 1955.

With 120 student delegates aged 16 to 26, from 35 countries, the Forum
presents a key opportunity for the youth to work together and develop
creative solutions to global crime issues.

"The best tool to combat crime is education," said Keynote Princess
Bajrakitiyabha Mahidol of Thailand,. "I congratulate Qatar and the Forum
organizers for promoting education to involve the youth in the planning and
development of national crime prevention strategies."

The student delegates will discuss the three main themes that the UN Congress
will focus on:

* The successes and challenges in the implementation of comprehensive
policies and strategies for the prevention of crime to strengthen the rule
of law in support of sustainable development
* National approaches to public participation in the strengthening of crime
prevention and criminal justice
* Enhancing the prevention of new forms of crimes such as cybercrime and
trafficking in cultural property.

The insights from the Forum will be presented for consideration at the UN
Congress.

"Qatar should be commended for making the Forum a point for start, and not a
point of arrival," said Mr. Dimitri Vlassis, Head of Corruption Prevention
and Economic Crimes, UNODC.
