Drug Control, Crime Prevention and Combating Terrorism

Growing economic uncertainty and the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated global problems related to drugs, organized crime and terrorism. As a result, we are seeing an increase in illicit trafficking in firearms, violence against women and girls, and trafficking in persons, and a deteriorating situation for persons in prisons. Societies also continue to struggle with drug problems, including opioids and new psychoactive substances. Responses to these crises have been hampered by corruption and economic crime. In conflict-affected and fragile regions, terrorists exploit the political and socioeconomic fallout of the pandemic. The global threat posed by Da’esh, Al-Qaida and their regional affiliates is compounded by growing concerns over terrorism grounded in racism and intolerance, or terrorist crimes targeting victims on the basis of religion or belief.
