Drug Policies Beyond the War on Drugs?

February 15, 2017, 6:30pm BST - 8:00pm
LSE IDEAS, London School of Economics

London WC2A 2AZ
United Kingdom

Topic areas


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.
