联合国非拘禁措施最低限度标准规则 (东京规则) The Tokyo Rules (1990) represent an important step in increasing the effectiveness of society’s response to crime. Non-custodial sanctions and measures play a significant part in criminal justice in many different cultures and legal systems. Most penal sanctions imposed on convicted offenders are in fact non-custodial. One goal of the Tokyo Rules, therefore, is to emphasize the importance of non-custodial sanctions and measures themselves as a means of dealing with offenders.

联合国关于女性囚犯待遇和女性罪犯非拘禁措施的规则(曼谷规则) Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, this is a set of rules focused on the needs of women offenders and prisoners. It is the first set of rules geared towards the treatment of women prisoners. They also “鼓励会员国制定立法,确立替代监禁措施,并优先考虑为这种制度提供经费,以及发展实施这一制度所需的机制.”
