Drugs

This strand focuses on drug and alcohol policy, associations between substance use and crime, and its impact at all stages of the criminal justice system. We aim to secure interdisciplinary participation from academics and practitioners, supporting the development of wide-ranging partnerships and a broad programme of events.
