UNODC International High-Level Conference Vienna

Deadline: May 31, 2019

The Education for Justice (E4J) initiative seeks to promote a culture of lawfulness through education activities designed for primary, secondary and tertiary levels. We are excited to bring together policymakers and educators at our International High-Level Conference, “Educating for the Rule of Law: Inspire. Change. Together.” from 7-9 October 2019. The event convenes policymakers from different fields (such as Ministries of Education and Ministries of Justice), educators and academics to build bridges between these communities and discuss innovative ways to empower the next generation of change makers.

There will be a select number of entries that will be showcased to an international audience at the Vienna International Centre in Vienna, Austria. The winners’ work will also be featured on UNODC social media channels. Entries must not, at the reviewing panels’ discretion, contain obscene, provocative, defamatory, sexually explicit, or otherwise objectionable or inappropriate content
