Drug Policy Network South East Europe
The Drug Policy Network South East Europe is an initiative of NGOs from the countries of South East Europe. Currently, there are 19 full members of the Network coming from Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, FYRO Macedonia, Greece, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia. The Network organisations are primarily providers of preventive, therapeutic, harm reduction and rehabilitation services. The cooperation between the organisations in South East Europe dates back to autumn 2009. The Vision of the DPNSEE is that: • National and international drug policies and programmes are grounded in the principles of human rights, social inclusion and public health • Policy making processes should be transparent and policy makers should engage meaningfully with civil society, particularly with affected populations (such as people who use drugs, parents and NGO initiatives). The Mission of the Drug Policy Network South East Europe is adoption of more humane and effective drug policies in SEE. The Drug Policy Network South East Europe aims to promote objective and open debate on the effectiveness, direction and content of the national, regional and international drug policy and to advance constructive recommendations for policy makers.
