Resource Library

This page provides an archive of resources highlighting the costs of the war on drugs over the past 50 years.

The archive can be searched by keyword, or filtered according to cost/sub-cost and region/country. To filter the searches use the drop-down menus and sub menus below.

You can also order search items by date or alphabetically.

As well as written reports and analysis you can find images, video and audio media (see icons next to resource items in the search output list below). Images can also be viewed from the galleries on the individual cost pages.

This collection will be expanded and updated over the coming year with support of project partners. The Count the Costs website is an evolving resource that will host examples of the devastating costs of the war on drugs. It is a work in progress which will develop over a number of years. At this stage it can be viewed as partially filled library shelves that you can help to fill with appropriate material (see here for more information).
