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 directions, policy principles and work plan.
The IDPC has two types of membership. Partner members work together to implement the annual IDPC work plan, while network members contribute to the dissemination of 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.
