This course aims to explore the often tense intersection between drug policy and human rights. Taking place within the broader context of the UN drug control system, discussion will focus on the identification and understanding of relevant international human rights agreements and on the evaluation and assessment of the gap between rights and practice in the implementation of drug policies in many countries and regions.
Including examination of both “consumer-” and “supply-side” issues, the focus of the course will be global, and participants will be drawn from all regions internationally.
The deadline to apply has been extended until 10th March 2014.
