The UNITED NATIONS OFFICE ON DRUGS AND CRIME (UNODC), established in 1997, merges the United Nations Drug Control Programme and the Centre for International Crime Prevention.

It aims to combat illicit drugs, organized crime, corruption, and terrorism. Technically, UNODC operates through research, field-based technical cooperation projects, and policy advocacy. It assists member states in implementing international treaties, strengthening legal frameworks, and building capacity for law enforcement. Its relevance is crucial in addressing global challenges like drug trafficking, human trafficking, and terrorism, promoting justice, and enhancing international security by fostering cooperation and supporting national efforts against these threats.


Agenda: Addressing transnational organized crime through international cooperation and policy frameworks.



Crimes vary widely in type and severity, encompassing offenses like theft, assault, fraud, and drug trafficking. Addressing transnational organized crime involves global collaboration and strategic policy frameworks. The agenda aims to unify countries and work together to combat criminal networks that operate across borders. The debate must be associated with international cooperation, facilitated by intelligence sharing and coordinated efforts against transnational crime networks, enhancing global security and justice.
