Drug use and drug policy

About our research into drug use and policy

CCSE members are actively researching the interaction of politics, evidence and policy as well as the relationships between drugs, intoxication and society. Key issues here include: the ways in which patterns of drug use/supply are changing in the UK at present, the best ways in which policy makers might respond to such changes, and the justice implications of drug policy and practice. CCSE Drug Researchers recognise that criminalisation policy, (definitions of) problematic drug use and drug sales are connected to social exclusion and other social problems and respond with critical research agendas, as demonstrated by their publications and research interests.
