Cultural, Traditional and Indigenous Rights and the Legal Regulation of Drugs
Part Two of the webinar series - 'A World with Drugs: Legal Regulation through a Development Lens'.

For this second webinar, we dive into how the structures upholding the so-called ‘war on drugs’ are rooted in racism and imperialism. How do we ensure that the legal regulation of drugs decolonises these structures and places cultural, traditional and indigenous rights at the centre of reform?

Speakers:
Sai Lone, Senior Adviser at Myanmar Opium Farmers’ Forum
Ras Iya V, Chair of Westmoreland Hemp and Ganja Farmers Association
Patricia Chulver Benítez, Executive Director, Fundación Acción Semilla
Vicki Hanson, Coordinator for Interdisciplinary Centre for Cannabis Research

This webinar will be in English, we are exploring options for live Spanish translation.

23 September, 16:30-18:00 BST.
London – 16:30-18:00, Bogota – 10:30-12:00, New York, 11:30-13:00, Johannesburg – 17:30-19:00, Delhi – 21:00-22:30

This webinar is part of a wider series exploring why the socially just legal regulation of drugs is vital for sustainable development. We will explore how drug policies intersect with some of the most pressing issues facing the development sector, and identify how to make sure legally regulated drug markets work for people along the supply chain.
