A thorough report examining the complex interrelationships between illicit drugs (production, trade and use), illicit drugs policies, human rights and social and economic development. The report draws attention to the fact that the association between drug policy and development policy has not been adequately acknowledged, thereby hindering the achievement of a human rights-based approach to both policy areas.
