GDPO Establishes a Post Graduate Network


On 26th November GDPO held the first meeting of the newly established post graduate network.  The network aims to bring together post graduate students and early years researchers in order to share ideas, discuss articles and provide support to any PG students working on drug policy or related issues.  The group will have a virtual presence on our website as well as meeting face-to-face when possible.

The first formal meeting was held in Bristol and attended by the following people:

IJ Benneyworth, PhD candidate at Cardiff University

John Collins, PhD candidate at the London School of Economics (LSE) and coordinator for the LSE IDEAS International Drug Policy Project

Emily Crick, PhD candidate Swansea University and GDPO research assistant

Karina Garcia, PhD candidate at the University of Bristol

Lisa Sanchez, is currently pursuing an MSc in Public Management and Governance at LSE.  She is also Latin American Programme Manager for Transform Drug Policy Foundation and México Unido contra la Delincuencia (MUCD) and is collaborating with LSE IDEAS as Project Associate

Other members who were unable to attend yesterday but will hopefully join us in either a physical or virtual presence in the future are:

Joe Dixon, PhD candidate at Swansea University

Jorge Linares Hamann, PhD candidate at the University of Bristol

Constanza Sanchez Aviles, PhD candidate at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona
