Dear representatives, 

We would like to inform you about the organization of side events at the eleventh session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (COP UNTOC), to be held between 17-21 October 2022.  

Application period: 5 July to 12 August 2022. Side events requests received after the deadline will not be considered. 

Side events may be organized by: 

  • Member States
  • UNODC branches, sections, units and field offices
  • UN entities
  • Intergovernmental Organizations
  • NGOs with observer status to the COP

In order to accommodate the largest possible number of requests, a maximum of two events per organizer will be accepted.  

Please note that the number of side events will be limited by the number of conference rooms available; priority will be given to events organized jointly (two or more organizers). 

Organizers are kindly invited to follow the attached guidelines for side events. The guidelines contain relevant information on organizational matters and build upon the lessons learnt from previous COP UNTOC sessions. 

A form for requesting a side event is provided along with these guidelines and also available at:
