The following three side events have been organised in cooperation with the Pompidou Group alongside the Sixty-First session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs which will be held in Vienna (Austria) on the 12-16 March 2018.
“Bringing Human Rights to the forefront of drug policy: development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation”, organised by the Governments of Germany, Malta and Norway and the Pompidou Group of the Council of Europe.

“Use of social marketing in promoting online interventions”, organised by the Governments of Croatia and Finland, the Pompidou Group of the Council of Europe and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation Section.
“No place for the Death Penalty in the drug policy toolbox (or in criminal law generally)”, organised by the Government of Switzerland, the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights, the European Union and the Council of Europe.
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.
