    Around 2,000 inmates convicted of low-level drug offences could be released in Ecuador under a new criminal code, as countries across the Americas slowly move away from harsh punishments for minor drug crimes. In an interview with El Comerico, Ecuador's chief public defender, Ernesto Pazmiño, said that thousands of people convicted of drug possession, street sales or acting as "mules" (couriers) will have their cases reassessed after the country's new Integrated Penal Code comes into force.

    Windows of opportunity for changing drug laws open infrequently and they often close without legislative change being affected. In this paper the author, who has been intimately involved in the process, describes how evidence-based recommendations to ‘decriminalize’ cannabis have recently been progressed through public debate and the political process to become law in Western Australia (WA). This paper describes some of the background to the scheme, the process by which it has become law, the main provisions of the scheme and its evaluation. It includes reflections on the role of politics and the press in the process.

  6. UNODC Executive Director releases "contributions" ahead of CND High-Level Segment on drugs

    Article

    Ahead of the High-Level Segment on the world drug problem to take place on 13th and 14th January 2014, the UNODC Executive Director, Yuri Fedotov, has released his "contributions" to the debate. This 19-page document is, in parts, refreshingly honest about the “unequal” progress that has been made since 2009 (with reductions in supply or demand for some drugs in some places being offset by increases elsewhere), the setbacks and new challenges, and the fact that “the overall magnitude of drug demand has not substantially changed at the global level”.

  18. Europese Commissie wil geen inspraak burgers bij TTIP en CETA

    12 September 2014
    Press release

    Amsterdam, 12-9-2014 - Een verzoek voor de lancering van een burgerinitiatief rond TTIP en CETA is op 10 september door de Europese Commissie afgewezen. De Europese Commissie weigert het initiatief te registreren omdat het buiten de bevoegdheden van de Commissie zou vallen. Maatschappelijke organisaties, waaronder TNI en SOMO, vinden dat de Commissie zeggenschap van burgers ondermijnt en roepen de nieuwe Commissie op om dit besluit terug te draaien.
