La 9e Conférence Annuelle de l’ISSDP (International Society for the Study of Drug Policy) aura lieu à Gand du 20 au 22 Mai 2015.
The conference will be hosted by the Institute for Social Drug research (ISD) which is part of the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology of the Faculty of Law, Ghent University. The ISD, founded in 2002, is a research group that conducts and promotes internationally relevant scientific research regarding different aspects of drug consumption, the supply of drugs, and local, national and transnational drug policies.
The venue for the conference (“Het Pand”, a former Dominican monastery and nowadays a historical monument) is situated in the historical town center at the banks of the river Leie. Historical places such as the Castle of the Counts, St Bavo’s Cathedral, Belfry as well as museums, restaurants and hotels are within 5-minute walking distance.
The ISSDP Conference is a unique occasion to present your latest findings to an intellectually engaged, diverse and dedicated scholarly community, and to immerse yourself in the state of the art across the full spectrum of drug policy research, with the participation of leading international scholars. Besides the plenary sessions, the 2015 ISSDP conference will offer space for panel discussions, poster sessions, post-conference workshops, etc.
The final program of the conference is now available here.
