Since 1909 the international community has worked to eradicate the abuse of narcotics. A century on, the efforts are widely acknowledged to have failed, and worse, have spurred black market violence and human rights abuses.

A new IDEAS Special Report on Governing the Global Drug Wars will be launched at this event.
This event is open to the public.
