Asuntos del Sur

Asuntos del Sur (ADS) is a think tank organisation whose mission is to develop and discuss scenarios for Latin America. Most of our work is focused in the area of d​rug policy and human rights, through the work of the Latin American Observatory of Drug Policy and Public Opinion running the first and only regional barometer 100% dedicated to the topic of drugs. Hand in hand with the work of the observatory, ADS is present in 11 countries in the region, where we organise seminars, workshops and discussions on topics related to drug policy. ADS is based in Santiago, but the overall work is done in countries such as Ecuador and Argentina. ADS was elected by the Foreign Policy Magazine as one of the most influential think tanks in social networks and has received several international awards.
