Abstract: 
On September 7, 1990, the United Nations Eighth Crime Congress adopted several important resolutions on diverse issues of criminal justice. The United Nations General Assembly adopted these resolutions, thereby assuring that, although not binding, they will have important impact on setting standards in criminal justice throughout the world. The resolutions were adopted at the end of a two-week meeting, held at the Palacio de Convenciones in Havana, from August 27 to September 7. The Congress also adopted several model conventions on international criminal cooperation, which have been discussed in an earlier issue of the IELR.
