Project summary: Research project focuses on examination of drug policies in various dimensions. By theoretical conceptualization of drug policy it follows the aim of creating analytical framework for drug policies comparison. The comparison of drug policies of Slovak republic and other european countries is extended by review of scientific evaluations concerned with the efectiveness of drug policy instruments that are being implemented and by review of „good practice“. Another dimension of the project is analysis of expert and public discourse about drug policy and attidudes towards drug users that are held by public. We assume, that drug policies are significantly influenced by expert and public discourse and aloso by attitudes of public.
