Governing the Global Drug Wars: Washington DC Report Launch

Speakers: John Collins, Coletta Youngers; Chair: Sanho Tree; Thursday 25th April 2013, 3pm; Venue: The Institute for Policy Studies, 1112 16th St NW #600 Washington,DC.

Since 1909 the international community has worked to eradicate the use of certain narcotics. A century on, the efforts are widely acknowledged to have failed, and worse, have spurred black market violence and human rights abuses. How did this drug control system arise, why has it proven so durable in the face of failure, and is there hope for reform? These are the questions the recent LSE IDEAS 'Governing the Global Drug Wars' report addresses.

This event is open to the public.
