2007 International Drug Policy Reform Conference

I’m really looking forward to the conference next week. Starting to plan out the workshops I want to attend and blog about (a couple of them, unfortunately, are at the same time as the one I’m co-presenting with David Guard). Lots of interesting ones, and lots of people I’m looking forward to seeing again, or meeting in person for the first time.
I didn’t realize until today that next Thursday’s keynote session features Antonio Maria Costa, Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). He’s a diehard prohibitionist and propagandist (here’s an example of his writing). Having him at an international drug policy reform conference should be… interesting, to say the least. He is balanced by Kasia Malinowska-Sempruch, Director of the International Harm Reduction Development program at the Open Society Institute (OSI).
I’ll be sure to pass on all the fireworks to you.
