Watch the latest livestreamed event from Chatham House


Changing the Global Perception of Drugs

This event constitutes the launch of the new report by the Global Commission, Countering the World Drug PERCEPTION Problem, which presents the case that due to negative perceptions regarding both drugs and people who use drugs, what are seemingly technical questions – such as the efficacy of harm reduction services – are instead debated as moral ones, which is unhelpful to achieving results.

The panellists will discuss current perceptions surrounding drugs that contribute to how governments shape policy, before setting out their own recommendations for the international community.

Event time: 9 January - 18:00 to 19:15
