The history, policies and practice of drug control in Asia, from opium wars to the first multilateral agreements on drug control, to the illegal production of scheduled substances (plant-based and synthetic), from the trafficking routes throughout the continent to the drug-free societies policies have been widely analyzed, but in isolation according to geographic sub regions or disciplines. This special issue welcomes articles covering the complete geographical spectrum in Asia, from Northeast Asia to the Middle East, and at providing a space for interdisciplinary research that connects Asian drug trafficking and inter-Asian legal responses’ cooperation. The special issue aims mainly to collect, in one collection, a general overview of the history, the current practice and the policies to address drug production, trafficking and use on the continent which is home to 60% of the world population.
