Established in 1997, the United Nations of Drugs and Crime is a member of the United Nations Sustainable Development Group, combining the International Drug Control Program, the Crime Prevention, and Criminal Justice Division under the United Nations (UN). UNODC member states help the committee fulfill its role assisting the UN in creating better coordinated, comprehensive responses to important issues of illicit trafficking and abuse of drugs, crime prevention and criminal justice, international terrorism, and political corruption. Over the years, UNODC has ratified and implemented conventions and protocols, established more accessible criminal justice systems, and enhanced knowledge of trends for effective policy formulation and impact assessment on drugs and crime. The UNODC is also known for its annual World Drug Report describing the changes and trends in worldwide drug use and prevention. This committee is designed for both beginner and experienced delegates. All delegates interested in finding solutions for the complex issues surrounding these delicate topics should consider UNODC.
