Parliamentary Seminar on Drug Policy Reform
The BGIPU hosted a seminar in Westminster on Drug Policy Reform from 28 to 30 October. Around 50 members from 30 parliaments from Latin American, West African and Europe attended along with a range of expert speakers and observers.
This event followed on from the 128th IPU Assembly in Quito panel discussion on drug policy reform and the seminar encouraged an open and frank debate on global drugs policy reform among parliamentarians from countries that are especially affected by this issue from the drugs supply and demand side. A key focus was on the unique role parliamentarians, as legislators and opinion leaders, could play on drug policy reform issues.
