Great Decisions: Drug Policy in Latin America

Great Decisions: Drug Policy in Latin America

Have harsh drug control policies caused more harm that good? The issue of migration to the United States from Latin America has overshadowed the war on drugs, which has been underway for decades with little signs of progress. What are the roots and the bureaucratic logic behind today's dominant drug policies in Latin America? Is it time to reconsider punitive drug policies that disrupt supply chains and punish drug possession?

We will discuss "No End in Sight: A Century of Drug Wars" by Mónica Serrano (attached).

Joining us will be Dr. Camilo Pardo-Herrera, professor at George Washington University's Elliot School of Policy and Government, and member of the Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) at George Mason University.

A Zoom link will be sent to registered attendees the day before the event. Adults.
