    TNI: Grietas en el consenso de Viena

    17 April 2003

    unodc-frontEn un primer análisis de la revisión de mitad de período de la UNGASS 1998, celebrada en abril de 2003, TNI llega a la conclusión de que los resultados son muy decepcionantes. Los avances destacables durante los últimos cinco años han brillado por su ausencia. La reunión se limitó a reafirmar los objetivos y metas adoptados por la UNGASS. La mayoría de países prefirieron a mantenerse al margen de las medidas aplicadas y evitaron realizar un verdadero análisis sobre el impacto de dichas medidas. ¿El resultado? Una imagen distorsionada de mejoras virtuales con la que poder justificar el mantenimiento del statu quo. Al parecer, prevalece la absurda idea de que la realidad conseguirá, de alguna manera, amoldarse a los deseos de los cuerpos legisladores.

  12. TNI-EMCDDA Expert Seminar on Threshold Quantities

    20 January 2011

    A wider trend for drug law reform is arising out of a felt need to make legislation more effective and more humane. Within this trend, a number of countries have considered decriminalisation or depenalisation models and many have, at least initially, considered threshold quantities as a good way to distinguish between what is possession and what is supply or trafficking and as a means to ensure that the sentences imposed are proportionate to the harmfulness of the offence.

    Press release

    A poco más de un año de la UNGASS 2016, no tiene ninguna credibilidad negar la realidad de que el panorama de la política de drogas ha cambiado y que se está violando el sistema. El Secretario General Ban Ki-moon instó a los Estados miembros a utilizar la UNGASS 2016 sobre drogas para "llevar a cabo un debate amplio y abierto que considere todas las opciones". TNI llama a armar un grupo consultivo de expertos que abarque cuestiones clave y desarrolle recomendaciones para lidiar mejor con temas polémicos después de la UNGASS 2016, en preparación de la próxima revisión de alto nivel de la ONU en 2019.

    Article

    Just over one year away from the 2016 UNGASS, denying the reality that the drug policy landscape has fundamentally changed and that tensions with the UN drug conventions are occuring, is no longer a credible option. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged member states to use the 2016 UNGASS on drugs "to conduct a wide-ranging and open debate that considers all options." TNI calls for a special advisory group that should be tasked with recommending how to better deal with the contentious issues following the 2016 UNGASS, in preparation for the next UN high-level review in 2019.
