This policy report, about what we call the ‘governance’ of drug policy, draws on and synthesises the findings from a unique and extensive programme of research, which involved a large number and a wide range of people including: former Home Secretaries and Drugs Ministers, former permanent secretaries and other senior civil servants, parliamentarians, current government officials, treatment, enforcement and prevention providers and practitioners, think-tanks and advocacy bodies, academics and media correspondents. This provided a wealth of information and insight, which are described in detail in separate background reports. Here we present an overview of the important issues for governance at each stage of the policy process, where they seem to be going wrong and possible options for addressing the deficits identified. We then consider the best ways to improve drug policy governance in order to maximise the impact of drug policy in the future.
