Next week the UN will host a Special Session of the General Assembly on the World Drug Problem that will include major challenges to conventional approaches to drug policy. On Friday, April 22, please join Aram Barra (Global EMPA, 2015) of Mexico Unido Contra La Delincuencia and Stephen Rolles, Senior Policy Analyst at Transform Drug Policy Foundation for an engaging roundtable discussion that will recap the outcomes of this special session, the current terrain of drug policy debates and the future of the "war on drugs," and perspectives on the path to a new Political Declaration on drugs in 2019.

The lunchtime conversation, which is free and open to the public, will begin at noon. It will be held at NYU Wagner, the Puck Building, 2nd Floor, 295 Lafayette Street, New York, N.Y. RSVP is required at the event's registration page.
