UNODC IACA Joint SessionBetween 2 and 4 February the United Nations of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and IACA organized a seminar for 33 civil society organization (CSO) representatives on the review mechanism of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC).

Participants from all corners of the globe attended and had the opportunity to exchange their views and experiences on best practices for combating corruption.

This three-day training session took place on the Academy’s campus in Laxenburg and focused on strengthening policy dialogue and partnerships between relevant CSOs, the UNODC and Member States in drugs and crime prevention. In addition to becoming better informed about key aspects of the UNCAC through a variety of lectures and practical exercises, the participants were familiarized with ways of contributing to country reviews and implementation – knowledge and skills which they can apply at home to facilitate a better understanding of the UNCAC.
