Global network promoting objective and open debate on drug policy
Introduction
The International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC) is a global network of NGOs and professional networks that promote open and objective debate on drug policy issues at the national and international level.

Mission
IDPC aims to promote objective and open debate on the effectiveness, direction and content of national and international drug policy and to advance constructive recommendations for policy makers that lead to the adoption of more humane and effective drug policies. We do this through the following activities:

• Facilitating communication and co-operation between civil society stakeholders and supporting collaborative activities/endeavours.

• Producing and disseminating information and analysis to highlight the failings of law enforcement-dominated approaches to drug policy and promote a public health and human rights based approach.

• Creating channels and advocacy tools for our partners and members and building their capacity to better engage with and influence the policy making processes of national governments and international agencies.
