The ‘war on drugs’ has been waged for the last 100 years yet world-wide the scale of drug use grows with far-reaching implications for health, crime, poverty and wellbeing.
This event seeks to challenge our understanding of contemporary drug issues and showcase some innovative approaches that work to reduce the harm and costs associated with drug use. This two-hour session will feature Fiona Measham, Professor of Criminology at Durham University and co-Director of the Loop; Niamh Eastwood, Executive Director of London-based Release, the national centre of expertise on drugs and the law; Tony Duffin, Director of the Ana Liffey Drug Project; and Steve Moore, Director, Volteface.
The event will include a short film screening and conclude with a panel discussion with questions and comments from the audience, chaired by Prof Hugh McKenna, Dean, Medical School Development, Ulster University and President of Addiction NI.
