The Centre for Drug Research has been discontinued

The Centre for Drug Research at the University of Amsterdam ceased to exist as an independent drug research institution per January 2004 and proceeded to finish ongoing projects and articles. Most of the CEDRO work (theoretical and epidemiological) is published on the CEDRO website. The CEDRO website has publications (of which many translated to major languages) on drug use careers, drug policy, and the politics of knowledge construction about drugs and the history thereof. These articles are authored by CEDRO staff, guest researchers, as by authors considerd intereresting re these topics. The website will remain maintained. Questions about visits or research opportunities can no longer be handled.
