Transforming the War on Drugs50 years after U.S. President Nixon declared the War on Drugs, this “War” has failed to significantly reduce the scale or impact of illicit drug production and trafficking. Yet consensus on the way forward is missing from the international policy debate: some states have introduced national reforms; others continue to champion militarized approaches. How can the international community tackle the complex causes and consequences that this war is intended to address? In this roundtable participants will shed light on this question by discussing the findings of the edited volume on Transforming the War on Drugs, published by Oxford University Press and Hurst Publishers in 2021.
