Freedom From Fear Magazine (F3) is produced by UNICRI in cooperation with the Ghent University. F3 aims to contribute to the advancement of knowledge and awareness of the international community’s priority issues in the fields of justice, the prevention and control of crime, development, peace and security and, more broadly, the protection of human rights.

The Magazine also supports knowledge and awareness of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and contributes to a better understanding of the achievements and challenges of the relevant Goals, in particular Goal 16.

F3 pursues the promotion of innovative dialogue by spreading awareness, creating consensus and a sense of shared responsibility regarding the problems that affect the global community.

The articles and opinions presented in F3 are the contributions of renowned experts from civil society, international organizations, governments, the academic realm and the media. F3 represents a permanent forum for international organizations, international civil servants and the public at large to compare the different approaches and points of view towards specific issues facing the world today. It facilitates the discussion of good practices, failures, and effective and enduring solutions.

As a forum for long-term change, F3 endeavours to promote democratic values and civil stability, and to aid the international community in developing actions towards greater peace, justice and security for all members of social, civil and political society.
