The Vienna Declaration is now available in five more languages thanks to the European Drug Policy Initiative (EDPI)
The Vienna Declaration is a powerful call to stop the global war on drugs: it urges governments and international organizations to put human rights, scientific evidence and public health into the center of drug policies. By now more than 17.000 individuals endorsed the declaration – a significant achievement but we believe there are much more people all over the world who think it is time to reform the global drug control regime.
The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) would like to contribute to the success of this call by its own means: we asked our partners in the European Drug Policy Initiative (EDPI) to translate the Declaration to their own languages. We are glad to present you the Vienna Declaration in five new languages: Bulgarian, Dutch, Hungarian, Norwegian and Romanian – thus, tens of millions of more people can read the document in their native langues now.
The translations are available here:
Виенска декларация (Bulgarian)
De Verklaring van Wenen (Dutch)
Bécsi Nyilatkozat (Hungarian)
Declarația de la Viena (Romanian)
What is the Vienna Declaration?
The Vienna Declaration is a statement seeking to improve community health and safety by calling for the incorporation of scientific evidence into illicit drug policies. The declaration process was launched as the the official declaration of the XVIII International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010) held in Vienna, Austria from July 18th to 23rd. The declaration was drafted by a team of international experts and initiated by several of the world’s leading HIV and drug policy scientific bodies: the International AIDS Society, the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy (ICSDP), and the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS.
