About Julian Buchanan

Julian has been involved in the drugs field for over 30 years, initially as a probation officer/drugs worker in Liverpool before continuing his interest as an academic. He has worked at a number of UK universities before moving to Victoria University of Wellington New Zealand in January 2011.

His main research interest is in the management and control of substance use and misuse and the interplay with discrimination, stigma, exclusion and licit drug use. He has published widely including around 40 book chapters/articles, including the second edition (with Ros Carnwell) of Effective Practice in Health, Social Care and Criminal Justice: A Partnership Approach, publish by Open University.

About the paper

In this lecture Julian will explore to what extent and in what way existing policies towards illicit drugs might be causing more harm than the actual drug itself.
