The Crime and Justice Hub is a civil society initiative by the Governance, Crime and Justice Division (GCJ) of the Institute for Security Studies (ISS). We firmly believe that information sharing and dissemination is the key to empower various stakeholders from government, the NGO sector, the media, researchers and most importantly communities to contribute to a safer and just society.

This division aims to: promote democratic governance and reduce corruption through enhanced levels of account­ability, transparency and respect for human rights in African democracies; and reduce crime and improve jus­tice by assisting African governments to develop evidence-based policies, legislation and strategies and improve the performance of their criminal justice systems.
