Drug policies and development - Conflict and coexistence


Drug policies and development - Conflict and coexistence

7 September 2020

Series: International Development Policy
Volume: 12
Editors: Julia Buxton, Mary Chinery-Hesse, and Khalid Tinasti

The 12th volume of International Development Policy explores the relationship between international drug policy and development goals, both current and within a historical perspective. Contributions address the drugs and development nexus from a range of critical viewpoints, highlighting gaps and contradictions, as well as exploring strategies and opportunities for enhanced linkages between drug control and development programming. Criminalisation and coercive law enforcement-based responses in international and national level drug control are shown to undermine peace, security and development objectives.
