"Greetings from Turin, Italy.  I am Antonia De Meo, the Director of the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). I am here with you today to deliver one message: we must stop crimes against the environment.

As we all know, biodiversity reflects the idea of a shared ecosystem with interdependent relationships between flora and fauna. Environmental crimes are a major threat to biodiversity.  

“This issue of the Magazine Freedom From Fear (F3) The day we discovered our fragility and our strength addresses the collateral effects of COVID-19 impacting criminal justice, namely, the growing influence of organized crime and terrorism and the rise of violence against and exploitation of women and children. I wish to commend all the authors and the Ghent University for exhibiting their commitment to research and innovation during these challenging times.
