PDF (Human rights in drug policy: a self-assessment tool)

With a new, unique self-assessment tool the Pompidou Group addresses the key questions in practically assessing drug policy compliance with human rights. The main one being: How can we measure progress in the absence of standardized indicators across many issues, and across countries? This new tool provides a straightforward entry point for human rights assessment across key drug policy aspects. Of course the concept recognises the variation in approaches and differing contexts across countries. By linking key topics to human rights standards and more specific probing questions, we provide a practical framework to investigate and assess the human rights implications for drug laws, policies and practices.
