dc.description.abstract The study focuses on the provisions relating to the suppression of illicit drugs in the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, the 1971 Psychotropic Convention, the 1972 Protocol to the Single Convention, and the 1988 United Nations Convention Against Illicit Drug Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances. It examines the content of the obligations imposed on states party by these conventions and gives select examples of how these provisions have been incorporated into domestic law. The global drug problem and the policy options available to deal with it are discussed. The international drug control system is placed in historical context. The international regulation of enforcement in the sense of actual policing, prosecution and punishment of drug offenders is investigated. The alternative methods for the control of illicit drug-related activities are examined. The supervisory organs of the international drug control system are discussed. While the major concern of this study is an examination of the technical rules of international law designed to suppress illicit drugs, it is also concerned with the policy of prohibition that underpins these rules, because of the interrelationship between this policy and the shape of the international legal provisions designed to implement it. en
