In its 2018 World Drug Report, UNODC acknowledged that the supply and use of illegal ‘narcotic’ drugs is now at historic highs, raising questions as to the sustainability and utility of criminalization approaches. Within the dynamic picture of ongoing drug market growth, the gendered impacts of both the drug trade and counternarcotic policies remains under analyzed, most particularly as this relates to women and girls.

The course will be held at the School of Public Policy, on the campus of the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary.

The full cost of participation in the course is EUR 850. This does not include travel and accommodation (lunches and coffee breaks during the course will be provided).

Note that scholarships or tuition waivers will not be available for applicants from the private sector or international agencies.
