UNODC Country Programme (2011-2014)
Sub-Programme3: Crime, Justice and Corruption
Sub-programme 3 of the Country Programme focuses on crime, justice and corruption.
The aim of Sub-programme 3 is to enhance national capacities to tackle transnational organized crime, money laundering and corruption through the promotion of international standards and the facilitation of bilateral, regional and international exchange. Legislative, regulatory and institutional capacity building will be delivered in the areas related to the United Nations Transnational Organized Crime Convention, particularly on anti-money laundering, terrorism financing and mutual legal assistance. In this respect, regional and international cooperation will be made possible through a UNODC initiative known as FIU to FIU programme (facilitating dialogue between the Iranian Financial Intelligence Unit and other foreign Financial Intelligence units). Sub-programme 3 will also facilitate a structured dialogue on criminal justice matters between the judicial authorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran and other countries. National efforts to establish an integrity-based, accountable and effective anti-corruption regime in line with the United Nations Convention against Corruption will be supported through technical cooperation in the areas of legislation, as well as capacity and institution building. Finally, an innovative initiative will be launched by UNODC in collaboration with ten national partners and UNESCO with the objective to enhance national capacity in countering trafficking in cultural properties, art and antiquities in line with the UNTOC. This initiative is expected to deliver legislative assistance, as well as to contribute to institution building and promote international cooperation.
