Intl 367U The Global Drug Trade

Explores the nature of the global drug trade, and its impact on the environment, nation-states, economies, populations, and international relations. Also examines different perspectives to understanding the drug trade, such as the global health approach to drugs, and the arguments for legalization. Students will also examine how drugs have been securitized as an issue, and the pros and cons of this approach. This class will place the drug trade in the context of other major global issues, such as how the drug trade fuels migration.
