This event will set out the challenges related to drugs and organised crime and seek to establish the state of the current landscape and the interconnectedness of policy approaches. Participants will determine shared objectives and outcomes from policy. During breakout sessions of small groups, participants will also be invited to investigate sectors that are particularly affected by these problems and suggest ways forward. 

Among the questions it will ask are: How should policymakers address the multi-faceted nature of organised crime activities? How can comprehensive and integrated policies be developed and how can they be made applicable or relevant to diverse international and domestic audiences? How can the effectiveness of drug and organised crime policy be measured and what are considered signs of success?
