This chapter provides a short guide to the institutions that currently play an important formal and practical role in the creation of new policies and new rules of transnational criminal law and in the administration of the resulting system. In line with the general focus of the book on the global multilateral components of transnational criminal law, rather than regional or national elements, its main focus is on the UN criminal justice institutions, which are based mainly in Vienna. Within the UN different institutions play different roles: some make transnational criminal policy, some transform this into law, some provide oversight and some provide administrative and technical expertise. The following discussion follows this breakdown of functions, before looking at other significant intergovernmental institutions and the role of non-governmental organisations.
