UNODC’s recent cooperation with the EU in Europe has focused on the Western Balkans, including support for border control, anti-money laundering and counter-financing of terrorism capacity, and measuring and assessing organised crime. Upon request, UNODC has also supported EU Member States in the implementation of national anti-corruption plans.
