UN Office on Drugs and Crime
During this year's session of WAMUNC, The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime will focus on the topic of trafficking, specifically the two major forms of trafficking, Human Trafficking and Migrant Trafficking. These two topics are two salient issues in the ever-evolving field of the international system, and delegates will be asked to take on the role of the UNODC in order to take measures to prevent trafficking worldwide. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime since it’s inception has been at the forefront of the issue of trafficking; and with the creation of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress, and Punish Trafficking in Persons, UNODC has been committed to taking measures to ensure that trafficking will be eradicated worldwide. However, the dynamics of the modern era have made dealing with trafficking very difficult not only for international organizations such as the United Nations but also for individual States across the world. Therefore, throughout this committee, delegates will be faced with the issue of fixing the mistakes of the past legislation, as well as updating and improving the frameworks for modern application.
