Un documento excepcional y oportuno de un investigador reconocido que lanza un desafío público al presidente Santos para formular desde Colombia una Hoja de Ruta que permita sacudir la camisa de fuerza institucional que mantiene el statu quo internacional y no deja avanzar hacia políticas más eficaces e inteligentes.
The 53rd Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) was a rather uneventful event. After the High Level Segment in 2009, the final agreement on the new Political Declaration and the unprecedented addition of an Interpretative Statement on harm reduction, this year’s CND would be a generally low-key affair. One of the most controversial issues were the comments of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) on the trend to decriminalize possession for personal use in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. Both Argentina and Mexico voiced strong objections. This CND also was marked by the imminent departure of Mr. Costa as Executive Director of the nited Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
