In light of the recently launched UNODC Strategy, UNODC is organizing the GEF, a conference focusing on the gender dimensions of:
- criminal justice responses to gender-based violence
- combatting transnational organized crime
Panel 3 will be discussing the gender dimensions of UNODC’s approach towards combatting transnational organized crimes that fall under the scope of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC). The panel will be discussing the experiences of Member States and the importance of implementing an intersectional approach towards combatting transnational organized crime. Specifically, the panel will be discussing the role of masculinities to understand and to create effectives policies and approaches.
