EVENT: LSE – Drug Policies Beyond the War on Drugs?

Posted January 10th, 2017 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘As countries examine new ways of managing drug issues beyond the problematic and simplistic model of the ‘war on drugs’, this lecture will examine how LSE research, among others, can help impact and drive government policies. Drawing on a number of LSE IDEAS reports, including the Expert Group on the Economics of Drug Policy, a decision science based approach to ranking drug harms, the outcomes of the Lancet Commission on Drug Policy, and an examination of cannabis reclassification in the UK we will examine new methods for evaluating and managing global drug issues.’
