The GDPP connects the impacts of criminalizing drugs as policy and uncovers how those drug policies pose a challenge to human rights, social justice, sustainable development, peace-building, and public health. Those who are interested in the program will also develop a set of valuable skills and tools on how to work on the divisive issues surrounding drugs.
Polish Drug Policy Network Foundation began as a civil initiative in 2008 when a group of 174 experts gathered together to work on reforming Poland’s drug policy – one of the most restrictive drug policy in Europe. The foundation provides legal advice, participates in public debates and in the media, cooperates with decision-making institutions, organizes social campaigns and takes part in the international debate on drug policy. IFP opportunity is available to two (2) current New School graduate students.
