This chapter explores the counter-terrorism mandate of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). It argues that UNODC’s mandate, technical expertise, field level operational capacity and professional networks concerning various types of crime place it in a unique position to address the increasingly complex and multidimensional nature of terrorism in a coherent, comprehensive manner, through its Terrorism Prevention Branch (TPB) and field offices. Its core mandate is strengthening the universal legal regime against terrorism, building criminal justice capacity of Member States to more efficiently prevent and counter terrorism and violent extremism as and when conducive to terrorism, as well as facilitating international judicial cooperation in terrorism-related matters.
