First treaty against globalized crime entered into force
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On September 29, 2003, the UN Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime entered into force. The accord requires state parties to cooperate on criminal control issues ranging from money laundering to human trafficking. According to the UN, "[t]he Convention represents a major step forward in the fight against transnational organized crime and signifies the recognition by Member States of the seriousness of the problems posed by it, as well as the need to foster and enhance close international cooperation in order to tackle those problems."

Learn more about the UN Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime.
