UN General Assembly on Drugs (UNGASS) 2016

From Tuesday, 19 April 2016
To Thursday, 21 April 2016

The ‘General Assembly’ is the principle policy-making organ of the United Nations (UN), and the only one in which all 193 UN member states have equal representation. At the request of member states, it convenes UN General Assembly Special Sessions (UNGASS) on specific issues.
In September 2012, the presidents of Colombia, Guatemala and Mexico called on the UN to host an international conference on drug policy reform.
The subsequent 2016 UNGASS on drugs (moved forward from the planned date of 2019) is aimed at providing an objective and open assessment of international drug control.
