Around the word, criminal justice-led approaches to drugs have resulted in mass incarceration, increases in crime, insecurity, and public health crises. Now, a coalition of human rights groups are calling on the United Nations to fully account for the true costs of the “war on drugs.”

The United Nations is bracing for an international debate on global drug policy, scheduled for 2016. The UN is organizing the 2016 Drug Summit in response to demands by Latin American leaders who have called for a reassessment of current drug policies.

On Wednesday, November 12, several partners from the Count the Costs coalition will speak at Open Society Foundations about the drug war’s impact on human rights, health and security:

  • Maria McFarland Sanchez-Moreno, Human Rights Watch;
  • Danny Kushlick, Transform
  • Jorge Javier Romero, Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas
