Legal tools

The international crime and drug control treaties provide the legal foundation for action against drug related offences, transnational organized crime and corruption and reflect the international community’s realization that such issues can be addressed effectively through the collaboration of all states affected or involved.

To facilitate the effective implementation of international drug control and organized crime treaties, UNODC has developed a variety of legal tools which provide States and criminal justice practitioners with invaluable practical assistance and information.
