Security

Research shows that people around the world see crime as the greatest single threat to their personal security. To reduce vulnerability to crime, UNODC works with governments to strengthen their legal and technical capacities to prevent and stop the traffi cking of drugs, people and fi rearms, and the smuggling of migrants. It works to ensure that measures taken against these phenomena are evidence-based, draw on good practices, and are in line with relevant international legal norms and standards. Moreover, in line with the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, UNODC provides services to governments in the legal and related aspects of counter-terrorism.
