As the UNGASS 2016 approaches, there is a need to consider how criminal justice approaches best fit within efforts to create an integrated and balanced approach for the international drug control regime.
As the international community debates how to move forward for the UNGASS, Brookings Institution Senior Fellows have led a project to evaluate the effectiveness of counter-narcotics policies. This panel organised by IDPC and IISS will discuss the project's findings.
IDPC will organise a workshop at the margins of the International Harm Reduction Conference to support NGOs to engage in global drug policy debates in the lead up to the UNGASS. More information will be sent soon on how to apply!
This congress focuses on the traditional and contemporary use of drugs in indigenous, mestizo, and urban communities in Mexico and Brazil. Informal and cultural means of control, and their relationship with formal and legal controls, will also be explored.
This conference is a unique occasion to present your latest findings to an intellectually engaged, diverse and dedicated scholarly community, and to immerse yourself in the state of the art research across the full spectrum of drug policy research.
SSDP will host a simulation of the upcoming UNGASS on drugs. Which will serve as a way for students to become familiar with the ins and outs of global drug policy reform during the months leading up to (the real) UNGASS 2016.
Please join us for the launch of a new policy report from United Nations University, What Comes After the War on Drugs?, exploring the upcoming UN General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem in April 2016.
The high-level thematic debate on 7th May will be the first time the UNGASS preparations are substantively discussed in New York and therefore provides an important opportunity to engage both the broader UN family and New York-based country missions.
