    Las sociedades del continente americano han convivido con las cocaínas fumables durante más de cuatro décadas, pero —aunque resulte sorprendente—, existen pocos estudios sobre la evolución del mercado y pocas pruebas de primera mano sobre cómo se comercializa realmente esta sustancia y cómo la utilizan millones de personas en la región.

    Societies in the Americas have coexisted with smokable cocaines for over four decades, but - surprisingly - there is a dearth of research on the development of the market, or much first-hand evidence of how this substance is actually commercialized and used by millions of people in the region. After a few years of field research, our study on the topic will be launched at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs.

    Report

    In dit rapport schetsen en vergelijken we de verschillende richtingen in pre-crime beleid gericht op de bestrijding van gewelddadig extremisme (CVE – Countering Violent Extremism) in Groot-Brittannië, Frankrijk en Nederland – drie Europese landen waar moslims een minderheid zijn. Ook bekijken we hoe dit beleid, zowel door de overweldigende concentratie op moslims als door het feit dat het een instrument van burgertoezicht is, islamofobe vooroordelen en verdenkingen helpt te institutionaliseren.
