This course aims to explore the often tense intersection between drug policy and human rights. Taking place within the broader context of the UN drug control system, discussion will focus on the identification and understanding of relevant international human rights agreements and on the evaluation and assessment of the gap between rights and practice in the implementation of drug policies in many countries and regions. Including examination of both ‘consumer’ and ‘supply’ side issues, the focus of the course will be global and participants will be drawn from all regions internationally.
A mix of teaching modes will be used and faculty are encouraged to minimise the use of formal lectures. Emphasis will be on discussion and interactive learning with opportunity for sharing participant experiences. Time will be allocated for personal reading and participants will be encouraged to interact personally with faculty so as to deepen understanding of the issues. Site visits and discussions with civil society organisations and groups will be a feature of the programme of activities.
All those attending the course will be provided by CEU with a Certificate of Attendance.
