    Book
    Foreign aid is supposed to be benign and selfless, yet often harms more than it helps, and benefits givers more than receivers. This thoughtful book argues that aid must be made less of a problem, more of a solution.

    Peru: From Virtual Success to Realistic Policies?

    • Drugs and Democracy
    01 April 2002
    Policy briefing

    The Peruvian government has become the victim of the false image of success of its drug control policies it launched at the end of the 1990's. The international community needs to recognise the reasons for Peru's so-called success proving unsustainable and to help the country design and draft a more effective anti-drug strategy.

    Perú: ¿Del éxito virtual a políticas realistas?

    • Drugs and Democracy
    01 April 2002
    Policy briefing

    El gobierno peruano está siendo víctima de la imagen de éxito en materia de control de drogas ganada a finales de los años noventa. Un éxito 'virtual' que ha obstaculizado el apoyo de parte de donantes internacionales. En estos momentos sería conveniente que la comunidad internacional se olvidara definitivamente del supuesto éxito peruano y ayudara a ese país en sus tentativas de diseñar y formular una nueva política de drogas.

    How can Reform be Achieved?

    • Martin Jelsma
    27 March 2002

    hans_brinkerAllow countries and regions more space for policy reform using and stretching the margins of the conventions. Strengthen alliances of like-minded nations to support one another and effectively coordinate efforts at the UN level through informal consultations and strategy meetings. Any crack in the global prohibition regime would not plunge the world into chaos immediately. We should not press for a new global straitjacket but for a model that respects cultural differences. We have to open up the debate about the wisdom of the conventions as they stand.

    • Lorenz Böllinger
    21 March 2002
