A global network promoting objective and open debate on drug policy
The objective of this UNODC report is to further the understanding about the mechanics of illicit trade in the East Asia and the Pacific region: the how, where, when, who, and why of selected contraband markets affecting the region.
Examining the evolution of Irish drug policy, the report explores the country’s national strategies; the legal context within which they operate; the public funds spent, or committed, to implement them; and the political bodies and mechanisms set up to coordinate the response to the problem.
This UNODC report analyses the dynamics of key crime in West African markets and provides recommendations for the international community to tackle cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin trafficking, as well as other drug-related problems.
This February 2013 newsletter focuses on drug policy developments and harm reduction services in Montenegro, OST treatment in Albania or the development of local responses to the emerging HIV threat among users of legal high in Romania.
