UNODC Research

UNODC research constitutes the key global authority in the fields of drugs and crime, providing high-quality, essential evidence to inform policy-making and valuable sources of knowledge in drugs and crime domains, including in the framework of the Sustainable Development Agenda. The Thematic Programme on Research, Trend Analysis and Forensics defines the key challenges, work priorities and quality standards, as well as the tools and services to support policy and programme development in the framework of UNODC mandates. Research outputs that are planned to be published in the coming months/year can be found under upcoming publications.
