89. The endtimes of Swedish drug policy? Human rights, social exclusion and a ‘drug free society’

Fredag 10 november 2017 16:30 - 17:30 Konferensrum 14

Moderator: Damon Barrett
Paneldeltagare: Frida Petersson, Jonna Sohlmér, Nikoletta Jozsa

Sweden has long championed human rights internationally. Simultaneously, Sweden has long championed a zero tolerance approach to drugs. Det er stadig mere klart at disse stillinger er uforenelige. Globally, this vision has produced systematic abuse. Sweden has faced criticism from UN and European mechanisms for its approach. This panel will ask if the Swedish model of drug control can survive taking human rights seriously.
