Entanglements of (Il)legality and Violence

Drug Trafficking and Drug Policies in the Americas

24.06.2024 - 26.06.2024
09:00 - 14:00
Zentrum für interdisziplinäre Forschung (ZiF)

Convenors: Philipp Wolfesberger (Bielefeld), Nelson Camilo Forero Medina (Bielefeld)

While violence related to drug-trafficking prevails in many parts of the Americas, some countries opt for legalization policies to counter illegal flows, public health aspects and public security. The changing context of drug trafficking and violence in the Americas is shaped by the prohibition regime, recent waves of its ruptures through cannabis legalization, and the tensions between the regional/local. The multidimensional research axes of violence and illegality related to drug trafficking, and inquiries of the local and regional require interdisciplinary approaches of the social sciences and humanities that bring together abstract, conceptual approaches with empirical studies. How is violence linked to the illegality of drug production and trafficking? How are regional dynamics and local responses and repercussions embedded in the context of prohibition and legalization in the Americas?

The discussions are open to activist and institutional work and engagement, students and the general public. The current momentum of cannabis legalization in Germany should be the impetus to connect the findings of the inter-American experience with local experts and scholars.

Roundtable discussion – 24 June 2024:
“Fluid Legalities: Cannabis Regulation in Germany and Global Challenges”
Representatives of German politics and civil society present key issues and debate them with international scholars.Contact:
