Friday 3rd of April 2009
L’OIJJ au quotidien
L’Observatoire International de Justice Juvénile (OIJJ) a eu le plaisir de participer à le 2ième Rencontre Internationale sur les Observatoires de la Criminalité au mois de mars au Chili. Cet événement a été coorganisé par le Centre international pour la prévention de la Criminalité (CIPC) et l’Observatoire national de la délinquance (OND) de l’Institut national des hautes études de sécurité (INHES), en collaboration avec le Ministère de l’Intérieur du Chili. Dans un message adressé aux usagers de l'OIJJ, Valérie Sagant, Directrice du CIPC, insiste sur la nécessité d'approfondir l'étude du phénomène de la criminalité, à travers des outils d'observation novateurs, et ce afin d'apporter des solutions adaptées dans le domaine de la prévention.


           Dear IJJO users and collaborators,

           The International Center for the Prevention of Crime (ICPC), in collaboration with the National Observatory of Delinquency Department (OND) and the Public Safety Division of the Ministry of Interior of Chile, organized the 2nd International Meeting on Crime Observatories from the 18th to the 20th of March 2009 in Santiago, Chile, at the head office of the Comisión Económica para América Latina y el Caribe (CEPAL).

           The 1st International Meeting on Crime Observatories was held in Paris, France in 2007, and provided a general overview of crime observatories across the world, how they are created and run. The 2nd Meeting focused on the theme “Observing Crime and Producing Results Useful to Communities” examined the analyses of observatories and their use by governments and communities. Over 200 individuals from 18 countries in Europe, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean attended the meeting including experts, academics and representatives of non-governmental organizations from the field.

           ICPC initiated a census among observatories across the world – 102 structures filled out the online questionnaire. Among these, the Centre kept 17 that matched the following definition:

1. Collection of data
The structure must collect data in a systematic way, using a defined timeframe and on a given territory. The methodology applied should be rigorously presented and followed-up.

2. Data analysis
The structure must use this data to identify crime trends. It does not simply represent a compilation of data. The observatory must process data with the intention to interpret it.

3. Public dissemination
We retained those observatories that shared their work with the public.

           The main results of the questionnaire are the following:

· The majority of observatories that responded are from Latin America (59%);

· More than half (59%) are governmental organizations, or are associated with government;

· Nearly 30% are interested in crime issues at the international level;

· On average, the observatories use approximately six different types of data. Most often, the data comes from government courses (94,1%) and police corps (94,1%);

· The majority of the organizations (64,7%) do not map their data;

· All of the observatories disseminate their results; most of them through the Internet and written reports (82,4%).

           Following the debates of the 2nd meeting two main issues were identified:

- The need for diversifying information sources to achieve the primary objective of an observatory that must provide a true representation of the reality and complexity of crime (focus groups, interviews with field workers, victimization surveys, etc.);

- The need for contextualizing crime data from different techniques, i.e., use available statistics and victimization surveys with other pertinent information that would allow the former to be more relevant, and thus create more effective policy trends. These contextualizing efforts will incite observatories to develop local analyses.

           ICPC and the OND concluded by announcing the organization of the 3rd Meeting in 2010 in Canada.

           The complete proceedings of the 2nd Meeting will soon be published on ICPC’s and the OND’s websites.
