Our membership has been growing organically since IDPC was set up in 2007. Members can be NGOs, academic institutions, think tanks or professional networks, but they must have a national or international outlook, and a credible track record in the drug policy field. There are no membership fees, but all members need to be committed to supporting the IDPC vision and mission, strategic directionspolicy principles and work plan. 

IDPC has two types of membership: partner members are involved in the implementation of our work plan, while network members help disseminate our ideas and materials. We come together to facilitate open debate on drug policy issues, and to promote more humane and effective policy at a national and international level.
