EUCPN meeting 2019

International co-operation

The Finnish Council participates in many international contexts to promote crime prevention. Cooperation with the crime prevention councils of the other Nordic countries is an important part of our work. The Council also participates in crime prevention cooperation in the European Union and the United Nations. Furthermore, the Council is one of the three Finnish national contact points in the European Crime Prevention Network (EUCPN), together with the Ministry of Justice.
