TNI's Drugs programme has been analysing since 1996 the trends in the illegal drugs market and in drug policies globally. The programme has been working for a reassessment of the conventional repressive drug policy approaches, and in favour of pragmatic policies based on harm reduction principles for consumers as well as small producers. All efforts are guided by our intention to contribute to a more coherent policy approach where illicit drugs are regarded as a cross-cutting issue within the broader policy goals of poverty reduction, human security, public health promotion, human rights protection, peace building and good governance.
