A century of international drug control

This chapter looks back at 100 years of drug control. It opens with a brief history of the opium trade, and illustrates how national governments were able to move beyond their individual commercial interests to embrace a system of international norms created for the common good. It then looks at the efforts made over a century to codify a global approach to controlling addictive substances and the complex negotiations that resulted in the present body of international law. It closes with a brief assessment of the progress made and the challenges that lie ahead.
