SUAB presents: An Audience with Dr Rebecca Askew - Drug Policy Voices

Manchester,

Drug Policy Voices project: Using values to frame debates about drug policy and opportunities for reform.

About this Event

Drug policy is firmly on the global political agenda, over the past decade we have seen changes to cannabis policy worldwide, an increase in drug-related deaths, the establishment of drug checking services at festivals and debates about the introduction of safe consumption facilities. Those with personal experience of consuming substances are often left out of the debate. 

Rebecca is a criminologist with a broad interest in substance use, drug policy and illicit drug markets. Her previous research has included drug treatment evaluations, substance use over the life-course and the benefits and functions of illicit substance use. Rebecca will talk about her current project, an ESRC “Drug Policy Voices Project”, which uses mixed methods to engage people who use drugs into debates about drug policy reform. 

A zoom link will be emailed to all registered delegates on the 9th of September
