Guatemala Within the Global Drug Wars

Thursday 9 May 2013, 6.30-8.00pm, Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speakers: HE Acisclo Valladares, Discussants: Mike Trace, Professor Victor Bulmer-Thomas; Chair: Dr Piers Ludlow

The continued focus on reducing the supply of illicit drugs has led to widespread violence, particularly in Latin America. Now a fundamental rethink of global drug policy is underway through the Organisation of American States and led by a number of Latin American countries, including Guatemala. Join our speakers as they provide new insights into the Guatemalan experience in fighting the global drug wars and what the future holds for the region's drug policies.

This event will be followed by a reception. All lecture guests are invited to attend.
