Rethinking drugs policy
We use our academic rigour and research to rethink big issues and drive the policy agenda. We use research-based evidence for better decisions and outcomes. We have a strong focus on young people and their use of drugs and this affects those in higher education and beyond.
Looking ahead – our future work
What we have achieved so far in this area is just the beginning.
Looking ahead to the next few months, we are leading a project to look at student drug use, its wider health and wellbeing impact, and influence Government policy on drug use. We are bringing in expertise from our Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, our student support activity and partnerships across sectors and around the world.
“I’m really excited that Middlesex is leading sector work with Universities UK in this important area. It’s a great example of how the University can bring its research, education and engagement expertise to find radical ways of tackling a problem. We’re looking forward to putting our expertise and knowledge in this area into action to bring about equity and real improvements in health and wellbeing.”
