Exploring the illegal drug issue in international context, this book looks at why harmonization has not already taken place at the European level. It considers the desirability and viability of harmonization, examines the conflict between repressive and liberal drug policies and applies a multi-level governance lens to the issue.
CAROLINE CHATWIN is Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Kent, UK where she teaches a course entitled 'Drugs, Culture and Control'. Her main area of research is European Drug Policy and she has published widely in this area.
