POLICY PANEL- Illegal drug markets...: A perspective from drug enforcement authorities
A panel presentation that will bring together some of the most important policy makers in security, drug policy and enforcement to present their views on the relationship between drugs, drug policy and security in Latin America.
Saturday, February 23, 20132:00 PM - 5:00 PM
YRL Conference Room 11360
Young Research Library, UCLA
The escalation of drug-related violence in Latin American countries in recent years has prompted an urgent debate about the effectiveness and costs of current anti-drug strategies being implemented in the region. Scholars from different countries have produced a significant amount of work and analysis about the causes and consequences of the upsurge in drug-related violence in the region, the role of the government and the mechanisms through which drug cartels compete to increase their market share and their effects on violence and crime.
