This event is organised by the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Since 1909 the international community has worked to eradicate the abuse of narcotics. A century on, the efforts are widely acknowledged to have failed, and worse, have spurred black market violence and human rights abuses.
How did this drug control system arise, why has it proven so durable in the face of failure, and is there hope for reform? A new IDEAS Special Report on Governing the Global Drug Wars will be launched at this event.
Speakers: William McAllister, David Courtwright, Ethan Nadelmann, Nigel Inkster
Chair: Professor Michael Cox
