Vienna is home to The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ), United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), and the United Nations Convention on Transnational Organised Crime (UNTOC). SI UN Representatives Martina Gredler and Christine Peer (Centre Contact), and Marion Prechtl, focus on a range of issues critical to eliminating violence against women and girls, including human trafficking, ageing (elder abuse), harmful traditional practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM), women in the workplace and women in the economy.
