Drug Control Policy Expert Examines Global Drug Prohibition Regime

Tuesday Mar 27, 2012 12:00 PM | Batts Hall (BAT) 5.108

The Department of Government presents a talk titled "The Rise and Fall of the Global Drug Prohibition Regime" by Ethan Nadelmann.

Described by Rolling Stone as “the point man for drug-policy-reform efforts,” Nadelmann is one of the world’s most respected and high profile critics and commentators on U.S. and international drug control policies.

His critiques of U.S. drug control policies and recommendations regarding harm reduction strategies and other alternatives to punitive drug prohibition have attracted international attention and played a decisive role in stimulating the growing debate over drug policy worldwide. He has spoken directly to diverse audiences throughout the world and appeared on scores of radio and TV programs, including The Colbert Report, ABC’s Nightline, The O'Reilly Factor and many other FOX programs, Al Jazeera News, Ted Koppel Special Report, NBC’s Today Show, NBC Nightly News, CBS’s 48 Hours, CBS Morning News, Larry King Live, CNN Headline News, CNN Crossfire, Rivera Live, The Charlie Rose Show, William F. Buckley’s Firing Line, and the Jim Lehrer Newshour, as well as programs in dozens of countries around the world.
