Glossary of terms used in drug policy promoted!

DPNSEE presented today the glossary of terms related to the problem of drugs, aiming to contribute to better understanding the drug problem in more emphatic manner. Glossary is an alphabetical list of terms used in a domain of drug policy, with the definitions for those terms. It contains explanations of concepts and terms related to the field of drugs and relevant related matters.

The glossary should serve firstly to member organisations in a way that will help in process of harmonization of opinions and attitudes. This material will also serve a wider range of groups of people including policy makers, stakeholders, activists, the media, police, judiciary and others.

The Glossary is currently in English only, but we plan to produce versions in various languages of South East Europe. We are also open to work on versions in other languages. Those interested in joining us in this effort should contact the DPNSEE Staff at office(a)

The Glossary was promoted at the Kick-off event of the “Support. Don’t Punish” campaign held at the EU Info Centre in Belgrade.

The latest version of the Glossary (December 2018) and versions in other languages are available for download following this link.
