This event is taking place in parallel with the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs. The objective is to discuss the connection between the ´war on drugs´, racism and human rights-based policies, as well as debating the role of the UN agencies that work on drugs, in the review of legal benchmarks and policies that result in discriminatory tools.

Those participating in the debate include: Sara Hamood, from OHCHR (The Office of the United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights), Salimah Hankins, from the Anti-Racism Coalition, Ojeaku Nwabuzo, from the European Network Against Racism and Fransérgio Goulart, from the Right to Memory and Racial Justice Initiative.
