Recalibrating the Regime: The Need for a Human Rights-Based Approach to International Drug Policy

In three parts, this report:

  • presents a critical analysis of the UN systems of drug control and human rights, and their relative relationship within overall UN governance, and outlines the basis for the primacy of human rights;
  • highlights the multiple ways in which the enforcement of drug prohibition, the dominant approach of the UN drug control system, leads to a wide and varied range of human rights violations; and
  • sets out recommendations aimed at “recalibrating the regime” to prevent the ongoing subversion of human rights protection in the name of drug control.
