Summer Institute on Addiction

Amsterdam, Netherlands,

As our hyper-globalized world brings people, substances, ideas, and potential sources of addiction closer together than ever, researchers, care providers, academics and professionals need to look at addiction studies in a new, dynamic light.

This two-week Summer Institute seeks to provide an interdisciplinary approach and lens to the study of addiction.

The programme is built around four themes:

  • an overview of policies and the history of the concept of addiction
  • contemporary prevention services
  • the current state of affairs
  • an assessment of treatment innovations
