The drug control regime established by the international community has not succeeded in curbing either the demand for, or the offer of, narcotics. But, despite a series of developments in the Americas - including the legalisation of cannabis in Uruguay, as well as in Colorado - there is still little support in Europe for repealing drug-prohibition laws. Nevertheless, a gradual policy convergence reveals the emergence of a European model favouring public-health strategies over a strictly penal approach to combating drugs; whilst growing trans-national support for legalisation indicates the persistence of an alternative paradigm for drug policy.
This book examines the various influences on drug policies in Europe: as the impetus for drug policy changes from grassroots movements, NGO networks, private foundations and academic research centres among others, are increasingly confronting the prevailing discourses of drug prohibition and criminalisation. Pursuing an interdisciplinary approach, and bringing together legal scholars, social scientists and practitioners, it provides a comprehensive, and critical, assessment of on drug policy reform in Europe.
