About the Office

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in Brussels is a Liaison Office to the European Union and its institutions, headquartered in Brussels. The office's goal is to foster policy exchange and operational partnership with the European Union institutions, in order to jointly advance the global agenda on the rule of law, governance and public health. The office also aims at increasing the understanding of the mandate areas of UNODC and its work, and promoting it, within the European Union, Brussels based think tanks, NGOs, and the wide public, through advocacy work and informational events. We also support UNODC HQs and field offices around the world in their relationship with the EU, and advise on various aspects, such as relevant EU policies, programming of funds, and contractual matters.
