Migrants selling flowers in the streets of #Turin (#Italy) are visible to every citizen transiting in public spaces. But the ways these persons act and live make them invisible in the sense that little or nothing is known about them. UNICRI conducted the study #Migrantflowersellers in the City of Turin to shed light on this specific segment of society.

The study finds that these irregular migrant workers are in a vulnerable and exploitable condition and presents a set of recommendations focusing on how to better regulate the #migrationflows; the establishment of mechanisms to detect fraudulent #visa schemes; the adoption of uniform procedures and standards and the promotion of integration.

+UNICRI – United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute and Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law present the new issue of #FreedomFromFear Magazine: “No place for young people”.

In this very moment there are #youngpeople who are leaving home to build a future in the best universities of the world, but there are also young people crossing the desert to join groups of fighters, and young people trying to cross the sea in small boats to escape their harsh circumstances.

The new issue of #F3Magazine talks about these journeys, explaining why many youths go through wars, violence, and different forms of indoctrination, and discuss what has been done and what remains to be done to meet the expectations of a new generation of citizens of the world. We can prepare or repair youths’ sails to make them able to travel their journey, but when our own societies do not have a direction, when they are violent and unfair, we can not expect the young to stay on course.

Environmental crimes are posing an irreversible threat to #ecosystems and communities, causing financial and social losses. Some of these crimes also fall into the category of serious organised #transnationalcrime as criminal groups and networks are increasingly engaged in what is currently representing a growing lucrative opportunity.

+UN Environment and +UNICRI – United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute are partnering to better equip the international community with research and best practice recommendations to effectively address these crimes by launching the Environmental #ruleoflaw project: advancing #justice, #governance and law for #environmentalsustainability.

The objective of this project is to provide Member States with options to consider for the development of holistic approaches to enhance their ability to address #environmentalcrimes.
