  1. Towards a harm reduction approach to enforcement

    • Jonathan P Caulkins, Peter Reuter (RAND)
    01 January 2009

    Harm-reduction as a policy goal implies targeting directly drug-related harms rather than drug use itself. So far it has been largely a public health sector movement, focused on harms to users, most notably from heroin overdose, injection drug use and club drugs. Harm-reduction has offered fewer solutions to the problems of drug-related crime, violence, corruption or market externalities. However, harm-reduction has potentially much broader application when applied to the entire suite of harms generated by the production, distribution, consumption and control of drugs, not just drug use.

    Denounce the Israeli Rogue State! Support the Palestinian People!

    Article

    Two pictures in the Philippine Daily Inquirer a couple of days ago said it all. One showed three dead Palestinian children, killed in Gaza by an Israeli bomb. Another, in the inside pages, showed three Israeli children playing inside a bomb shelter hiding from Hamas rocket attacks. After over a week of Israeli attacks, more than 660 Palestinians dead, most of them non-combatants, including 215 children and 98 women. At a clearly marked United Nations refugee center, an Israeli attack killed 40 people and wounded 100. Another 2950 people have been wounded in the whole of Gaza.

  20. Withdrawal Symptoms in the Golden Triangle

    09 January 2009

    Drug control agencies have called the significant decline in opium production in Southeast Asia over the past decade a 'success story'. The latest report of the Transnational Institute (TNI). based on in-depth research in the region, casts serious doubts on this claim noting that Southeast Asia suffers from a variety of 'withdrawal symptoms' that leave little reason for optimism.
