Abstract: The article is devoted to the U N activities in preventing and combatting transnational organised crime. The author considers functioning of the system of specialized agencies and institutions of the U N which develop the strategies for combatting transnational crime (ECOSOC, the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, UN Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders and so on). Norm and standard developing activities in the fight against crime are studied and assessed. Most detailed attention is given to the analysis of the Convention adopted by the U N General Assembly — Convention to Combat Transnational Crime, the smuggling of the Illegal Migrants and Illicit Traffic in People (Women and Children). The interest for the convention is caused b y the fact that it has concentrated and summarized the experience of states and international legal instruments in fostering joint efforts in preventing and combatting organized crime. Despite the fact that the Convention contains some issues that have not been completely regulated, it fixes and specifies for each member-state such legislative and other measures which can be applied to recognize as criminal the acts specified under the convention when they are committed directly or indirectly as a part of a criminal group. While evaluating the role of the U N in developing strategies and coordinating the fight with organized crime on the whole, it is should be noted that the measures taken b y this organization exert significant influence on developing and fostering international cooperation in preventing organised crime actions, promote consolidation of the international community and establishing lasting links between the criminal justice systems of practically all states in combatting this global social phenomenon. To be still more effective in combatting transnational organised crime, the U N activities and the measures proposed by it, besides being universal and globally valid, ought to be practically applicable, especially in implementation into national legislations, further development and promoting cooperation among criminal justice bodies.
