During the 22nd International Harm Reduction Conference in Beirut this month a new resource for legal scholarship on human rights and drug policy was launched. The International Journal on Human Rights and Drug Policy is the first and only peer reviewed law journal focusing on human rights and drug policy through the lens of international law.
The Journal is published by the International Centre on Human Rights and Drug Policy, founded by Rick Lines and Damon Barrett of Harm Reduction International and having its academic home at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, National University of Ireland Galway.
The Journal is available for free download and is operating under a creative commons licence to ensure wide access and usage.
