5 With funding from the European Union D EVELOPMENT OF M ONITORING I NSTRUMENTS FOR J UDICIAL AND L AW E NFORCEMENT INSTITUTIONS IN THE W ESTERN B ALKANS Phase three – Training MY PURPOSES FOR THIS TRAINING 1.To understand the needs of participants 2.To being to share my 30+ years experience of crime and justice statistics 3.To prepare for the second visit in November (on Prosecution and Courts), especially on what is needed for closer co-operation between agencies and areas. 4.To open an link for any who wish to keep in contact

6 With funding from the European Union D EVELOPMENT OF M ONITORING I NSTRUMENTS FOR J UDICIAL AND L AW E NFORCEMENT INSTITUTIONS IN THE W ESTERN B ALKANS Phase three – Training INTRODUCTIONS FROM PARTICIPANTS Please give name, organisation, position and what you would like to gain from the training this week. Plus any other information that you think could be useful to the others here. Please comment on the proposed agenda of the week if you wish

7 With funding from the European Union D EVELOPMENT OF M ONITORING I NSTRUMENTS FOR J UDICIAL AND L AW E NFORCEMENT INSTITUTIONS IN THE W ESTERN B ALKANS Phase three – Training LESSONS I HAVE LEARNED FROM PREVIOUS WORK- I Essential for every country to have good basic data on police, prosecution, corrections, courts, migration, other governance issues Essential for good co-ordination of data – Across different areas of law enforcement – Across the country as a whole Involve central statistics agencies Good continuous training in statistics

8 With funding from the European Union D EVELOPMENT OF M ONITORING I NSTRUMENTS FOR J UDICIAL AND L AW E NFORCEMENT INSTITUTIONS IN THE W ESTERN B ALKANS Phase three – Training LESSONS I HAVE LEARNED FROM PREVIOUS WORK - II Need for good central guidelines Need to publish statistics routinely Need to use statistics for policy and operations Carry our research to get more information as to what the statistics actually mean Important to get independence from politicians Achieving all this takes a good deal of time and we should think about a 5 or 10 year plan

9 STRENGTHENING JUSTICE & HOME AFFAIRS STATISTICS IN THE WESTERN BALKANS Objective: to strengthen response to crime and corruption by bringing national statistics justice and home affairs towards compliance with international standards and EU acquis Project funded by the EU under the CARDS programme with additional funds from Germany Three Phases Many common features with UNODC, World Bank Statistical work in Africa and Middle East 7 countries / territories Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, FYROM, Kosovo (under UNSCR 1244), Montenegro, Serbia

10 THE THREE PHASES: PHASE 1 (RESEARCH) Set out relevant international standards and EU acquis Picture of the strengths & weaknesses of data collection systems Identify gaps and needs of statistical systems It involved:  Desktop research  7 research missions One output:  Technical Assessment Reports for 7 countries / territories

11 PHASE 2: GUIDELINES To identify common data collection challenges To discuss and adopt specific draft programme guidelines To agree a set of regional indicators To prioritise training needs and adopt outlines of training programmes It involved: o Preparation of draft Programme Guidelines o Feedback from project countries / territories o Discussion and adoption at First Regional Workshop One output: o Programme Guidelines adopted

12 PHASE 3: TRAINING To design and deliver targeted training activities To improve national capacities to record and report JHA statistics in line with international standards and EU acquis To identify areas for further work and improvements It involves: o Training to be carried out by international experts together with national focal points and national counterparts o Training delivered to police, prosecution, courts, and institutions in areas of migration / asylum / visa o Several targeted trainings in Albania between October April 2011 Similar to World Bank work, although Internet Training a new WB feature. This training will be openly available via the WB web site

13 FIRST REGIONAL WORKSHOP (SKOPJE, MAY 2010) Goals To present the technical assessment reports To identify common data collection challenges To adopt specific draft guidelines To prioritise training needs To adopt the outlines of the training program To agree on a set of regional indicators

14 CHALLENGES OF THE CCJ STATISTICAL SYSTEM IN THE WESTERN BALKANS Developing person-based systems Developing better computerized systems to record data Assigning a unique Integrated File Number (IFN) to person- records to track persons across the whole CCJ system Clear written counting rules to record crime incidents Better co-ordination of statistics across countries and across agencies of law enforcement Training all responsible staff with regard to implementation Enhancing statistical analysis and use of the data collected Improving public dissemination of the data collected I WILL DEAL WITH SOME BUT NOT ALL OF THESE ISSUES

15 RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE PROGRAMME GUIDELINES # 17 and # 14 Better coordination with INSTAT should be achieved, in particular with a view to include crime statistics in the Statistical Yearbook. Systematic reporting of statistics … should be established, also in view of international reporting (Eurostat and UN-CTS) Sessions 4, 5, 6, 7 # 46 The designated Eurostat Focal Point for crime data within INSTAT should work closely with the Department of Data Processing and Protection of the General Directorate of Police and Eurostat in order to develop a protocol for the regular collection and reporting of crime and criminal justice data to Eurostat. The protocol should specify the nature and content of data to be reported. Sessions 2, 3, 4 # 47 Consideration should be given to the appointment of a single contact point for the reporting of all crime and criminal justice data at the national, regional and international levels. This single contact point could be the same as the focal point for the data collection of Eurostat. Sessions 2, 3, 4
