International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC)

idpc-logoThe International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC) is a global network of NGOs and professional networks that specialise in issues related to the production and use of controlled drugs.

The Consortium aims to promote objective and open debate on the effectiveness, direction and content of drug policies at national and international level, and supports evidence-based policies that are effective in reducing drug-related harm. It produces occasional briefing papers, disseminates the reports of its member organizations about particular drug-related matters, and offers expert consultancy services to policymakers and officials around the world. IDPC members have a wide range of experience and expertise in the analysis of drug problems and policies, and have contributed to policy debates at national and international level.

IDPC has a global membership of NGOs and professional networks with an interest and expertise in drug policy issues. Partner members work together to implement the annual IDPC work plan, while network members contribute to the dissemination of our ideas and materials. We have come together to facilitate open debate on drug policy issues, and to promote more humane and effective policy at a national and international level. Our advocacy positions are based on 5 overarching policy principles. The network is managed through a steering group of representatives from the 10 regions, and a secretariat based at Release, the UK drugs and legal advice charity.
