Professionals, academics or experts from Latin American and Caribbean countries (LAC) (1) will have an opportunity to participate in the European Drugs Winter School (EDWS) this year, thanks to two scholarships covering the registration fee being offered through the EMCDDA’s partnership with the COPOLAD project. The course will be online.
The EDWS, organised by the University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL) and the EMCDDA, will be delivered online from 13–24 February 2023, and will focus on the theme of ‘Displaced populations and drug-related issues’.
The EDWS will include live lectures with experts and practitioners, virtual tours to field work projects and individual exercises. The full programme can be consulted here.
The course is open to university students (undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate), researchers, professionals and administrators interested in or working in the drugs field, including participants from the EMCDDA’s network of focal points in 30 countries, or from programmes being developed by the EMCDDA with third countries (e.g. Latina American, Caribbean, Western Balkans, Latin America and CariibNorth Africa, Eastern Europe).
The sessions will be recorded and made available for subsequent viewing. Completion of exercises and an exam are compulsory for those wishing to obtain credits. The courses will be conducted in English; therefore, students should have a good written and spoken level of the language.
