By Drugs and (dis)order

Voices from the borderlands 2020 seeks to bring to light some of these voices coming out of our fieldwork in seven borderland regions of Afghanistan, Colombia and Myanmar. Together, these three countries account for more than 80% of global illicit opium production and about 70% of global cocaine production. All have experienced years of violent conflict and are in the midst of some form of peace process.

The testimonies in this report offer valuable insights into how illicit drugs – and drug policies – shape the dynamics of violence and peace, poverty and development, and insecurity and resilience. By listening to marginalised voices, we believe that drug policy and development specialists can become more attuned to the ways that illicit drug economies have an impact on poverty alleviation, access to services, economic development and strategies to fight inequality and human insecurity, and reduce violence and harm.
