The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide.
Duration of the project is 12 months Expected Starting Date: Immediate The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is a global leader in the fight against illicit drugs and international crime. Established in 1997, UNODC consists of the Drug Programme and the Crime Programme. UNODC has approximately 2,200 staff members worldwide. Its headquarters are in Vienna, and it has 18 field offices as well as liaison offices in New York and Brussels. UNODC relies on voluntary contributions, mainly from governments for 90% of its budget. UNODC is aiming to implement its operational priorities through an integrated approach to counter drugs, crime and terror . The UNODC Regional Office for the Middle East and North Africa (ROMENA) covers 18 countries, for a total of 80 staff members. UNODC Country Office in East Jerusalem has currently five staff members (3 national staffs, 2 international staff) and a portfolio of four different projects. The UN Youth Volunteer will therefore be interacting with 1) judges and public prosecutors; 2) forensic doctors and forensic scientists; and 3) national counterparts (e.g. Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Development and Social Affairs, and Ministry of Health). Constant communication and coordination between UN agencies will also allow the UN Youth Volunteer to deal with UN agencies tackling the issue of violence against women as well as prison reform from complementary but different perspectives.
