U-Turn on Addictions: Biological and social sciences to reframe drug policy

17-18 February 2016, Barcelona

ALICE RAP project will host an on-site and online final debate to present and discuss key research findings coming out of the project, their policy implications and the science with the greatest potential to contribute to smart and evidence-based global drugs policy.

The event will be attended (either in person or remotely) by high-level scientists, policy actors from national and international organisations and expert civil society actors, and is expected to shape the messages from multidisciplinary addiction science for drug policy influencers and implementers.

Discussions will be stimulated by short scientific presentations on key topics around two broad pillars:

  • "the scientific basis for a U-turn on addictions" - presenting and discussing the latest evidence and knowlege on drug use, harms and mechanisms.
  • "U-turning in the mosaic of time and place" - examining policy and porgramme options to mitigate the harm caused by addictive products.
