The Decriminalisation of Drugs
The 2019 conference will be held as usual on the 22nd to the 24th of February at Hinsley Hall. The topic is “The Decriminalisation of Drugs” and we have been supported and assisted in organising this by the Quaker Decriminalisation Network, a national Quaker body.
We have invited three well informed speakers:
- Danny Kushlick, Head of External Affairs at Transform Drug Policy Foundation
- Peter McCall, Cumbria Police and Crime Commissioner
- Alex Stevens, Professor in Criminal Justice at the University of Kent
This promises to be another excellent conference, on a very topical subject, which if only became reality could lead to a considerable easing of our prison population and the mending of so many broken lives and the collateral damages that the present policy causes.
These conferences are one of the high points of the “QICJ year and enable members and others attending to make or renew contacts with those involved in the different areas of the criminal justice system. This conference is likely to be well attended and early booking is advised, no later please than 31/01/2019. Cost will be £220 full board for the weekend with a reduced rate for non-residential participants.
For booking information please contact Simon Ewart, QICJ Conference, Skewjack Barn, St. Levan, Cornwall, TR19 6NB
