The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, formerly known as the Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention, was created in 1997 by merging the Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Division of the United Nations Office in Vienna with the United Nations International Drug Control Program (UNDCP) and changed its name in 2002 to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
The agency's main areas of focus are international terrorism, political corruption, crime prevention and criminal justice, and the trafficking and usage of illegal narcotics.
In this conference the delegates of United Nations Office for Drugs and Crime are going to discuss about prison reform and alternatives to imprisonment. Unlikely to the other UNODC committes our topic is more relevant to being discussed under the topic of crime rather than the agenda of drugs.
Agenda Item: Prison reform and alternatives to imprisonment
Under-Secretary-General: Ada Tara Haliloğlu
