Drug war campaigns present challenges to human rights. Extrajudicial killings, unjust or unlawful detentions, and denial of essential medicines, are among the ills faced in the global drug war, some of them large enough to risk fracturing world rule of law efforts. This session will review various rule of law in drug policy situations, and national and international advocacy efforts to address them.

Organized by DRCNet Foundation AKA, with Asian Human Rights Commission, Associazone Luca Coscioni and Forum Droghe.


  • Father Albert Alejo, Faculty, Pontifical Gregorian University
