In 2015, the United Nations Member States gathered in Doha, Qatar for the 13th Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice. In the outcome document of the Congress, known as the Doha Declaration, Member States committed to integrating crime prevention, criminal justice and other rules of law aspects into education systems. To implement this decision, the Education for Justice (E4J) initiative was developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
To give young people the chance to come up with their own ideas to educate their peers on the rule of law using technology, E4J conducted a series of hackathons in 2017:
• Johannesburg, South Africa: 27 - 29 July 2017
• La Paz, Bolivia: 1 - 3 September 2017
• Jakarta, Indonesia: 20 - 22 October 2017
The three winning teams, together with a local team from the United States, which was supported by The Social Engineering Project, were invited to a global Hackathon4Justice held from 9 - 11 July 2018 in Mountain View, California, in partnership with Symantec and Africa Teen Geeks.
Building on the success of these previous events, Africa Teen Geeks partnered with Facebook for a hackathon in support of E4J to be held from 22-233 March 2019 in Lagos, Nigeria
