Editorial of the special section of the International Journal of Drug Policy, by our Centre Director Professor Karen Joe Laidler.
The Asian region is marked by a high number of killings that are carried out in the name of the war on drugs. Several countries retain the death penalty for drug offences, and there are also numerous extra-judicial killings of people who use drugs, especially in the Philippines. This special section of the International Journal of Drug Policy will build on work presented at the first Asian regional meeting of the International Society for the Study of Drug Policy, where several papers on such killings were presented.
