The CARICC delegation headed by Director R. Miralizoda took part in the thirteenth session of the working group of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, organized on May 23-27, 2022 in Vienna.

As part of the event, meetings were also held with the leadership and senior officials of the UNODC headquarters on the issues of determining priority areas for CARICC activities in the framework of the implementation of the UNODC Program for the countries of Central Asia for 2022-2025. Issues were discussed on the inclusion and definition of the role of CARICC as a regional partner in the developed UNODC Concept “Strategic Stability System”, as well as proposals for interaction and complementarity of regional initiatives in Central Asia, in particular, the Regional Research Center for Analysis and Monitoring of the Situation in Afghanistan, planned to be built in the near future.

Participation of CARICC in this system will allow more effective coordination and exchange of information to respond to threats related to drugs and crime. Will facilitate the establishment of communication and cooperation mechanisms between the networks of CARICC and CASC (Network of International Legal Cooperation for the countries of Central Asia and the South Caucasus).

Facilitate the exchange of information on transnational organized crime groups through existing coordination platforms such as GCC, SELEC, EUROPOL, INTERPOL.

During the meeting with representatives of UNODC, issues of developing a joint strategy to ensure the sustainable development of CARICC and ensure the financial stability of the Center were also discussed.
