IDPC has been involved in a number of specific projects, in addition to the work we are already implementing:
IDPC is working in partnership with the Washington Office for Latin America, Dejusticia, and the OAS Inter-American Commission of Women, in collaboration with Costa Rican Association for the Study and Intervention of Drugs (ACEID), and Corporación Humanas, to address the issue of women incarcerated for drug crimes. The sponsoring organizations have convened an international working group of government officials, lawyers, and researchers on women’s and drug policy issues, to advance policies that protect the rights of this vulnerable group and end the unjust criminalization of non-violent drug offenders.
IDPC is working in partnership with the Transnational Institute, Diogenis and Forum Droghe to implement this project funded by the European Commission Drug Prevention and Information Programme. The project aims to promote debates on innovative drug policy alternatives.
This project, led by IDPC in partnership with the International Security Research Department at Chatham House and the International Institute for Strategic Studies, aims to collate and refine theoretical material and examples of new approaches to drug law enforcement, as well as to promote debate amongst law enforcement leaders on the implications for future strategies.
With funding from USAID, the Kofi Annan Foundation and IDPC will work alongside the West Africa Commission on Drugs in 2014 and 2015 to disseminate the Commission's report and recommendations, through the organisation of workshops and country visits.
IDPC is working as a technical partner in an ambitious project led by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, aiming to expand harm reduction services to 180,000 injecting drug users, their partners and children in China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, and Malaysia.
This project, funded by the European Commission and led by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, in collaboration with a number of partners, seeks to build the political and social momentum for change by empowering civil society to inform, advocate for, and bring about social and political change to address HIV and to foster greater participation of people who inject drugs in social and community life.
