Roojin and Susan at ISA

GSL Research Assistant Roojin Habibi presented her work on Canada’s proposed plans to legalize cannabis for non-medical use in the context of the UN drug control treaties at the International Studies Association Convention on February 25, 2017. Habibi "examined provisions in the three drug control treaties to explain why the treaties do not allow for cannabis legalization for non-medical use, and provided three pathways that Canada could follow in order to reconcile its national drug policy agenda with international treaty obligations."

Alongside Habibi on the panel was GSL Research Associate Susan Rogers Van Katwyk who presented her work on a method for examining causal pathways and measuring the health effects of international laws.
