The Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) was established by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) resolution 1992/1, upon request of General Assembly (GA) resolution 46/152, as one of its functional commissions. The Commission acts as the principal policymaking body of the United Nations in the field of crime prevention and criminal justice.
The CCPCJ coordinates with other United Nations bodies that have specific mandates in the areas of crime prevention and criminal justice, and implements the outcome of the congresses into concrete action through decisions and resolutions.

- Combating the Challenges of Justice Systems (with a Focus on Restorative Justice)

She had her first experience with MUN at Hamburg Model United Nations 2016, where she particularly enjoyed the chance to combine her interest in law and politics with a passionate discussion among young people with different
cultural and ethnical backgrounds. During an exchange semester at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá in 2018, she had the opportunity to chair for the first time at Costa Rica International Model United Nations. She is now looking forward to making many exciting memories inside as well as outside of session during EuroMUN 2019 in Maastricht.
