12:30pm - 1:30pm    |    The Puck Building , The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue, 2nd Fl., 295 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012-9604
Featuring Aram Barra – Co-founder and Programme Director, Espola; Program Officer of the Joint Drug Policy Reform Project of Mexico United Against Crime and Transform Drug Policy Foundation.
The ‘war on drugs’, in most places, is metaphorical. It is rarely used by governments and was recently abandoned as a rhetorical device by the United States. As more public figures call for drug policy reform, two inevitable questions come to mind (a) how did we get to where we are today? and as reform comes about (b) what are the policy trends that different countries are following around the world?
This talk will address most common misconceptions and concerns around drug policy reform and cannabis legal regulation. It will also present with key questions as reform moves forward around the world.

The Conflict, Security, and Development Series is co-presented by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU Law School, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School for Continuing and Professional Studies, NYU’s Global Institute for Public Health, and the Office of International Programs at NYU Wagner.

Each Tuesday, this series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches and highlight recent analytical and practical innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in the context of conflict and post-conflict situations.
