Pompidou Group provided new human right tool

Today the Pompidou Group makes another landmark contribution to promote human rights compliance in drug policies. With a new, unique self-assessment tool the Pompidou Group addresses the key questions in practically assessing drug policy compliance with human rights. The main one being: How can we measure progress in the absence of standardized indicators across many issues, and across countries? This new tool provides a straightforward entry point for human rights assessment across key drug policy aspects. Of course the concept recognises the variation in approaches and differing contexts across countries. By linking key topics to human rights standards and more specific probing questions, we provide a practical framework to investigate and assess the human rights implications for drug laws, policies and practices. The web-version of the tool can be downloaded here.
