With this training we aim to:

  • Equip non-governmental stakeholders with knowledge about the Organized Crime Convention and its supplementing Protocols;
  • Provide practical information about entry points and tools for engagement of non-governmental stakeholders in the Review Mechanism;
  • Stimulate the sharing of experiences, networking and collaborative initiatives addressing organized crime at national, regional and global levels.

Alumni opinion on the SE4U Self-paced course

Vienna, September 2021. The first cohort of the SE4U self-paced course graduated on August 10, 2021. Participants came from NGOs, Academia and the private sector. Horacio Pacheco, CEO of Auditoria D.C. in Argentina, is an experienced professional from the private sector working to prevent Transnational Organized Crime, Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing. During July-August 2021 Horacio participated in the online self-paced course on stakeholder engagement in the implementation of the review mechanism of the UNTOC on UNODC's e-learning platform. 
Read his experience below.
 I had the honor of studying, together with colleagues from other nations, appreciating the shared values of integrity, professionalism and respect for cultural diversity. Even with 20 years of practical experience in business risk prevention and with more than 8,500 cases of analysis, the practical information that the self-paced course has given us, the stimulus for the exchange of experiences, the creation of networks and the formation of collaborative initiatives, has been simply fantastic and revealing. E4J, SHERLOC, and WhatsOn were new tools for me.”

  • The structure of the training closely resembles the structure of the Toolkit. All reading materials also come from the Toolkit.
  • Some learning materials are presented in a video or audio format. Make sure that you are in a quiet environment or wear headphones. Some video materials will appear with subtitles.
  • All modules have an identical structure. They start with learning objectives and include a summary of the assigned reading from the Toolkit. They are followed by practice activities of different formats (e.g., multiple-choice quizzes, drag and drop exercises, jigsaw puzzle activities, short essays, and discussion forum assignments). These practice activities are a key component of this training. They are meant for reflection on the assigned reading materials and are expected to help deepen your learning experience.
