Children of the Drug War
Available through store
Children of the Drug War: Perspectives on the Impact of Drug Policies on Young People is a unique collection of original essays that investigates the impacts of the war on drugs on children and young people. With contributions from around the world and utilizing a wide range of styles and approaches including ethnographic studies, personal accounts and interviews, the book asks three fundamental questions:
- What have been the costs to children of the war on drugs?
- Is the protection of children from drugs a solid justification for current policies?
- What kinds of public fears and preconceptions exist in relation to drugs and the drug trade?
Damon Barrett is the senior human rights analyst at the London-based International Harm Reduction Association. He is also a co-founder and project director of the International Centre on Human Rights and Drug Policy and an editor of the International Yearbook on Human Rights and Drug Policy.
