In collaboration with the Open Society Foundation’s Global Drug Policy Program , the CEU School of Public Policy presents a series of debates devoted to complex and interdisciplinary issues raised by illicit drugs and global and national policy responses to drugs. One of this events was organized on February 20, entitled “Drugs and Development: Punishing the Poor". Please watch our video report from the event!
Throughout many parts of the developing world, the cultivation of illicit crops is the only economically viable option for small farmers. Despite major investments in alternative livelihood programs, such efforts have rarely met with success and in some cases, actually worsened living conditions. Elsewhere, poor young people with little access to education and few opportunities for employment may turn to drug consumption or be drawn into other roles in the drug trade. These people take on the most hazardous jobs and face the greatest risk of ending up in conflict with the law, either at home or abroad.
