On the margins of the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) host a side-event focused on addressing the linkages between terrorism and transnational organized crime in Africa, with high-level participation from the Permanent Missions of Mozambique and Niger, as well as the African Centre for the Study and Research on Terrorism (ACSRT) and the Eastern Africa Police Chief's Cooperation Organization (EAPCCO).
