Africa’s illicit drug market: what’s needed to address it


Various parts of Africa have become transit points for the global trade in illicit drugs. As a result, an increasing number of people across the continent are becoming involved in the trade, and are using illegal drugs themselves. This event presents new research from the ENACT programme about the growing heroin trade pervading Africa’s East Coast, a comprehensive analysis of Africa’s drug policy, and how criminal intelligence analysis can be used to tackle organised crime in Africa.

Chairperson: Ottilia Anna Maunganidze, Head of Special Projects, ISS
