The Mexico Summit is a new initiative from the UCL Mexican Society as part of its efforts to offer a better understanding of Mexico’s challenges and initiatives in a global context.

The First Mexico Summit at UCL aims to bring together students, researchers and decision makers to present and discuss about the current Global Drug Policy in a stimulating environment.

In mid April, the United Nations General Assembly will hold a Special Session on the World Drug Problem as part of its efforts to enhance cooperation and advance on a common strategy to counter the drug problem worldwide. The UCL Mexican Summit aims to widen the discussion around the drug problem, from different perspectives, and about the implications of the outcome document from UNGASS.

The format of the conference will include panel discussions around key issues on the drug problem and policies. Panels will be led by experts on the field and will count with the participation of students, researchers and government representatives.

The summit is organised by the UCL Mexican Society as part of it’s efforts to contribute to Mexico’s challenges through the advancement of applied science and technology.
