The general scope of the academic programme includes the following topics:
- General overview of the different types of drugs and their allowance in European states: before starting a more detailed analysis of drugs policy, participants should have a general understanding of different types of drugs by their chemical type of the active ingredient, as well as legal classification by risk to human health
- Drug supply reduction – an overview of EU policies and measures: the issue of drugs’ illegal dissemination is on the agenda in many European countries, so analysis of existent policies will provide the participants with factual conditions
- International treaties on Drugs Policy: the overview of international documents regulating drugs supply and control will give the participants the opportunity to study the policy in EU in comparison to internationally
- The role of the ‘dark web’ in the trade of illicit drugs and internet-facilitated drugs trade: an enormous amount of drugs are illegally smuggled via the web, so to find the solution to the problem, participants should be able to appreciate the magnitude of the problem
- Decriminalisation of drugs – prospective: as this issue is being brought to the fore constantly, participants will get a general outline of ‘pro’ and ‘contra’ arguments for drugs legalisation and thus will be able to form their own opinions
- Access to controlled medicines – the impact of legalised drugs: the use of narcotic substances in medicine is widespread and integral, though the process sometimes gets out of governmental control, causing misuse of the respective narcotic components.
