Seminars and Proceedings
Since the establishing of the Beckley Foundation in 1998, Amanda has drawn together high-level academics from different disciplines, together with politicians and policy experts, to discuss drug policy and science in a confidential setting.
The Beckley Foundation was at the forefront of the creation of an evidence-base for the development of new drug policies. Until that point, there had been very little academic analysis of the successes and failures of current national and international drug policy approaches. Now, the principle of evidence-based drug policy is widely accepted.
