UN Office on Drugs and Crime Director: Haneen Kantar
The Commission on Narcotic Drugs, established by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in 1946, is the central drug-policy making body within the United Nations. In 1991, the General Assembly broadened the mandates of the CND to allow it to serve as the governing body of the Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and to review the Fund of the United Nations International Drug Control Programme’s budget. This highly substantial budget accounts for over ninety percent of the resources necessary for international drug control by the United Nations. Narcotic drug control is a crucial in the modern world as its effects extend beyond its users. Delegates in this committee will be challenged to analyze the effects of narcotic drugs in the specific areas of terrorism and civil society.
Topic 1: The Funding of Terrorism through Drug Trafficking Topic 2: The Impact of the World Drug Problem on Civil Society
