DPMP Projects

The goal of DPMP is to improve Australian illicit drug policy by generating new evidence; translating that evidence into policy-relevant information; and studying how policy actually gets made. All of our work is underpinned by a focus on capacity-building: encouraging scientists from other areas to work in the illicit drugs domain; providing consultancy and support to policy makers to improve their use of research evidence; working in partnership with existing drug research centres and teams across Australia; bringing international expertise to Australia; and disseminating our work to researchers, policy makers and the public.

Our research projects are listed below.
