UN Entity: UNODC, Côte d’Ivoire

Assignment Context:

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is mandated to assist Member States in their fight against illicit drugs, crime and terrorism and is a global leader in those areas.

Transnational organized crime manifests in many forms, including as trafficking in drugs, firearms, cultural property and even persons. At the same time, organized crime groups exploit human mobility to smuggle migrants, undermine financial systems through money laundering and use information and communication technology for criminal purposes. Organized crime yields high profits for its culprits and results in high risks for individuals who fall victim to it. From a sustainable development perspective, organized crime has devastating effects, it threatens peace and human security, violates human rights and undermines the economic, social, cultural, political and civil development of societies around the world.
The Organized Crime Convention (UNTOC) represents the principal legally binding instrument focused on preventing and combating transnational organized crime. It is a landmark treaty that is close to attaining universal adherence.
This UNV assignment is located in the Global Programme on Implementing the Organized Crime Convention in the Conference Support Section (CSS), Organized Crime and Illicit Trafficking Branch (OCB), Division for Treaty Affairs (DTA) of UNODC. The International UN Volunteer will be based within the Regional Hub against Transnational Organized Crime based in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

UNODC’s Global Programme on Implementing the Organized Crime Convention aims to support States in implementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) and especially the observations emanating from the Review Mechanism to UNTOC. To this end, the Global Programme pursues two interrelated outcomes. First, it supports States in adopting legislative and other related measures to strengthen UNTOC implementation. Second, it supports States in developing and implementing evidence-based plans and strategies to address transnational organized crime.

Both of these outcomes are implemented through four key modalities: the development and dissemination of knowledge on transnational organized crime issues through the SHERLOC knowledge management portal; capacity-building to implement UNTOC amongst relevant Member State authorities and other stakeholders; the development of tools to support responses to transnational organized crime, including for the purpose of fostering international cooperation in criminal matters; and awareness-raising and education on the consequences of and importance of combating organized crime, including through advocacy.

In 2022, UNODC established in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, a Regional Hub against Transnational Organized Crime in West and Central Africa, funded by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany. Under the Regional Hub, the Global Programme has been supporting countries in the region in domesticating and implementing UNTOC, through the regional dissemination of various technical and legislative assistance tools on organized crime with a specific focus on crimes that affect the environment, the development of national strategies against organized crime and the collection of case law and legislation to feed the SHERLOC knowledge management portal.
