Video | ‘Drug Policies and Development: Conflict and Coexistence’, a conversation with the co-editors

The co-editors of the 12th thematic issue of International Development Policy – Mary Chinery-Hesse, the first woman Chancellor of the University of Ghana; Khalid Tinasti, Executive Secretary of the Global Commission on Drug Policy and Julia BuxtonProfessor at the University of Manchester, UK, explain the rationale behind this issue.

The 12th thematic issue of International Development Policy explores the tension between devel­opment and drug control goals, both current and historical. The volume of fifteen articles draws on a broad spectrum of thematic issues to address the following key questions: Are prohibition and development mutually exclusive or complementa­ry international agendas? How do the harms associated with drug policy enforce­ment undermine development prospects? The diverse group of authors highlights the corrosive effects of criminalisation and prohibition – based approaches on the livelihoods and fundamental rights of those who are vulnerable, including women, children, people who count on drug cultivation and trafficking to make a living, and people who use drugs. They also address the limitations and feasibility of development – focused interventions in drug control strategies within the context of the prohibition paradigm.
