Inhaltsangabe: Despite the vast size of the worldwide illicit drug market, little is known about the structure of the distribution process in different countries, the way in which markets respond to changes in supply and demand, and the impact of law enforcement. Much of the research that has been done has sought to develop academic theory, with limited attention to the policy implications. Thus, public and political debate about illegal drugs have remained largely insulated from existing research. This book attempts to draw researchers a little closer to policy, and to encourage politicians and their advisers to engage more willingly with the research community. The book has its origins in a conference held at John Jay College in New York City, at which leading academics and policy advisers in the U.S. and Europe described their most recent research and drew out the implications for drug control policies.
Chapter topics include: Crack cocaine distribution and abuse in New York; How young Britons obtain their drugs; Impact of heroin prescription on heroin markets in Switzerland; Women as consumers of illegal drugs; Typology of illegal drug markets; Heroin use and dealing in an English Asian community; Swedish drug markets and policy; Albanians and illicit drugs in Italy; Geographic analysis of illegal drug markets in Delaware; Drug trafficking as a cottage industry (Washington-Baltimore area); Structure of a large drug trafficking organization in New York City; Performance management indicators and drug law enforcement; and Connecting drug policy and research on drug markets.
