This report, co-submitted with the World Coalition against the Death Penalty, assesses the compatibility of key drug control policies and practices pursued by Lao PDR with its obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), in particular: the death penalty for drug offences; and, arbitrary arrest and detention of people who use drugs and “drug offenders.”

The report informed the UN Human Rights Committee's review of Lao PDR's human rights performance at its 123rd session in July 2018.
