Stakeholder Engagement for the Implementation of the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime Project



The aim of the Stakeholder Engagement for the Implementation of the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (SE4U) project is to prepare non-governmental stakeholders (civil society organizations (CSOs), academics and the private sector)  so they are fully trained and ready to participate in the review process of the Convention on Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC), in line with Resolution 9/11 and launched through Resolution 10/12 of the 10th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP). The Civil Society Unit of UNODC is currently implementing this project in partnership with the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime and close collaboration with the Alliance, and regularly holds workshops, provides online course, creates networks as well as prepares educational materials for non-governmental stakeholder engagement in this process.

Following the training, participants should be prepared to contribute to the general review during COP, the country review at the national level, and constructive dialogue between government focal points, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and other stakeholders.

This training will target Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), academics and private sector representatives

The training aims to:

  • Introduce participants to Member States’ self-assessment questionnaire of UNTOC and the Protocols thereto and relevant articles of each cluster;


  • Inform the participants about the methodology, entry points and available tools for engagement and coordination of inputs for the review process;


  • Provide a platform for sharing of experiences, network, build confidence and promote positive interaction among different non-governmental stakeholders.


The training will be based on COP UNTOC Resolution 10/1.  If you want to learn more about the UNTOC Review Mechanism read this toolkit and watch this short video and please find more information on the CSU’s work here or contact

UNODC Delivers the first Workshop for Civil Society on the Self-assessment Questionnaire of the UNTOC Review Process

Vienna (Austria), 8 July 2021 – The review process for the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) was officially launched in October 2020 through the adoption of Resolution 10/1. Since then, Member States are appointing focal points to carry out the review through the self-assessment questionnaire which is the main instrument for the review. Resolution 9/1 of the Conference of the Parties to UNTOC explicitly calls on States Parties to “prepare … responses to the self-assessment questionnaire through broad consultations at the national level with all relevant stakeholders including, where appropriate, the private sector, individuals and groups outside the public sector, non-governmental organizations and academia […].”
