The Research Volunteering Opportunity

Support from a volunteer to research the responses of judiciaries worldwide to the COVID-19 pandemic is sought. The end product would be an annotated bibliography of legal and policy documents detailing national, regional, and international responses. The intention is to share good practices among judiciaries.


At the conclusion of the 13th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice held in Qatar, the Doha Declaration was adopted. Calling for the integration of crime prevention and criminal justice into the wider agenda of the United Nations, and endorsed by the General Assembly, the Doha Declaration has at its center the understanding that the rule of law and sustainable development are interrelated and mutually reinforcing. To put the Doha Declaration into reality, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime – with the financial support of the State of Qatar – launched an ambitious Global Programme.

Officially established in April 2018 under the Global Programme, the Global Judicial Integrity Network is open to judiciaries and a broad range of individuals and institutions, as well as relevant international organizations. The Network aims to promote peer learning and support activities, facilitate access to relevant tools and resources related to judicial integrity, and support the further development and effective implementation of principles of judicial conduct and the prevention of corruption within the justice system.
