This paper explains the methodology developed by the EMCDDA for open-source information monitoring in the area of drug markets. Initially designed to support the work of the EU Early Warning System in 2016, the technique has recently been expanded to cover open-source information through a pilot project focusing on data on heroin and cocaine seizures of 100 kg or more for the European market between April 2017 and March 2018. The Paper concludes with recommendations for continued monitoring to feed into policy, practice, and other areas of the EMCDDA’s work.

This is a supporting publication to the 2019 EU Drug Markets Report.
