2018 Pompidou Group Executive Training on “Evaluating the development, implementation and impact of drug policy”
Following the successful training sessions in the previous years, the Pompidou Group is happy to announce that it will organise the Executive Training on Drug Policy in 2018 on “Evaluating the development, implementation and impact of drug policy”.
A unique format of the training provides a rare opportunity for professionals working in the drug policy field to have a hands-on training in an international environment. The complete training course outline can be consulted here.
The Pompidou Group works closely with national policy makers and practitioners to develop drug strategies and tools that focus on improving health and human rights in the criminal justice systems. This includes interventions that help to reduce crime, prison overcrowding and stigmatisation of drug-dependent persons.
The brochure ‘Criminal Justice and Drug Policy’ introduces the work of the Criminal Justice and Prison Programme of the Pompidou Group – by giving a voice to both leading experts and people who have survived drug dependence and experienced related hardship in prison.
