Description

To better understand the UN’s overall mandate for addressing organized crime, the Global Initiative conducted a desk review of the UN’s entities and agencies to identify their mandates and working agendas for organized crime, specifically in relation to the UN’s work on six crime types that have had major impacts on broader UN goals, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The resulting tool and companion brief seek to provide a better understanding of the UN’s counter-crime work and serve as a basis for discussion about how organized-crime challenges, which are now far-reaching and serious, could be more effectively met and how UN System resources can be used more coherently.
