What is UNGASS?

The United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on Drugs was held in New York between 19th and 21st of April 2016. This was the third time in history that the UN General Assembly dedicated its special session to the issue of drugs, following UNGASS 1990 and 1998.

Amid recent instances of drug policy reforms taking place in different parts of the world, the UN special session served as a platform in which the decades-long framework of international drug control – characterized by the three UN drug control conventions – was brought under scrutiny.
