United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
The UNODC is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is responsible for addressing issues related to drugs, crime, and terrorism around the world. Its mandate includes promoting international cooperation in the fight against illicit drugs, organized crime, and terrorism, as well as supporting member states in their efforts to prevent and reduce drug abuse, crime, and corruption.
The agency is headquartered in Vienna, Austria, and works with member states, civil society organizations, and other stakeholders to develop and implement strategies and programs to address these issues. UNODC also provides technical assistance to member states to strengthen their legal and criminal justice systems, improve drug prevention and treatment programs, and enhance international cooperation on law enforcement and criminal justice issues.
UNODC's work is organized around three main pillars: (1) research and analysis, (2) normative work, and (3) technical assistance and capacity building. Through these pillars, the agency seeks to promote evidence-based policies and practices, support the development and implementation of international legal instruments, and provide practical assistance to member states to strengthen their capacities to address drug, crime, and terrorism issues.
Overall, the work of UNODC is aimed at promoting peace, security, and development around the world by addressing the threats posed by drugs, crime, and terrorism, and by supporting member states in their efforts to build strong and effective criminal justice systems.
