Background and objectives
Requirements
UNODC is looking for an online volunteer to support the work of the Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration, by providing assitance to the production of digital content, e.g. drafting articles, summaries, web stories, gender/youth/partnerships web pieces, supporting the drafting of reports. In details, the volunteer would write several thematic pieces (between 5-10 pieces of approximately 1,000 words in length each) about the overarching work of the Global Programme such as on youth and gender while also selecting and creating visual elements for this text. This work will involve drafting the text based on existing reports and web articles produced under the Programme.

At the conclusion of the 13th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice held in Qatar, the Doha Declaration was adopted. Calling for the integration of crime prevention and criminal justice into the wider agenda of the United Nations, and endorsed by the General Assembly, the Doha Declaration has at its centre the understanding that the rule of law and sustainable development are interrelated and mutually reinforcing. To put the Doha Declaration into reality, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime - with the financial support of the State of Qatar - launched a Global Programme aimed at helping countries achieve a positive and sustainable impact on crime prevention, criminal justice, corruption prevention, and the rule of law. This four-year initiative promotes peaceful, corruption-free and inclusive societies for sustainable development, through a people-centred approach that provides access to justice for everyone and builds effective and accountable institutions at all levels.
