    Ten Years TNI Drugs Programme

    22 June 2010
    In the media

    TNI has been involved in international drugs policy work since the 1998 UN General Assembly Special Session on Drugs (UNGASS). This new report summarises the lessons of 10 years of work in this field, emphasising drug controls that respect human rights: the rights of farmers caught in the illicit economy to a life in dignity; decriminalisation of drug use; and the promotion of harm reduction approaches where they are proven to save lives.


     
  3. TNI Drug Law Reform Project

    01 December 2009
    In the media

    The TNI Drug Law Reform Project promotes more effective and humane drug policies through dialogue and up-to-date analysis of developments in the region.The project was created amidst growing evidence that the decades long “War on Drugs” has failed. Current international drug control policies have not decreased drug consumption, curbed the planting of crops destined for the illicit market, or curtailed the expanding drug trade. Instead, they have marginalized drug users who are pushed out of reach of treatment programs, repressed farmers who may have no other means of survival, and overwhelmed criminal justice systems. Such policies have targeted users and small-scale traffickers, while large-scale criminal organizations have remained unrestrained.

  15. Compulsory Drug Treatment in Southeast Asia – Neither Ethical Nor Effective

    02 May 2015
    In the media

    Global Politics - The strategy of the Joint Declaration for a Drug-Free ASEAN founded on the specious belief that taking a sufficiently ‘tough’ stance on the drug trade would result in its demise, has been shown to be as nonsensical as it was empirically dubious. ASEAN will not be drug free by 2015, nor will it be by the new extended deadline of 2020.

    Af Christian Juhl
    20 February 2015
