Upcoming Events: MSU International Law Review's Annual Symposium 2016
Emerging Narratives: Developments in Global Drug Policies
This year's symposium will focus on exploring issues related to drug policies. It will address new and exciting developments in drug policy platforms across the globe. Our goal is to highlight social and economic problems as a result of existing drug policies and enforcement tactics. By presenting on various countries' innovative approaches to drug policy, we can hopefully spur a debate on the value and effectiveness of different approaches to regulating drugs.
The symposium will incorporate diverse subject areas related to drugs, including healthcare and pharmaceuticals, border regulation, mass incarceration, and criminal justice reform.
