Office of Academic Engagement

DPA’s Office of Academic Engagement was launched at the end of 2015 to more deeply engage researchers and academics in DPA’s work and the drug policy reform movement more broadly. Founded by Princeton Professor Ethan Nadelmann, DPA has a rich tradition of bringing together key thinkers from around the world to tackle the complex problems posed by drug policy. Building on that legacy, the Office of Academic Engagement will support scholars in doing advocacy, convene experts from a range of disciplines to inform the field, and strengthen DPA’s use of research and scholarship in developing and advancing its policy positions.

If you are an academic or researcher who wants to get more involved in drug policy reform, please contact Julie Netherland at jnetherland [at] drugpolicy [dot] org or 212-613-8063.
