What has happened since – 2020 report

“What has happened since” is a report on alcohol and drug policy developments in Nordic and Baltic countries.

Over the years, Nordic Alcohol and Drug Policy Network (NordAN) has been actively involved in various cases in different countries. We have sent many letters to the governments, parliaments and leading institutions to draw attention to the principles of evidence-based alcohol and drug policies and support our national member organisations in pushing for better decisions. Sometimes these interventions are just one-time actions.

As we have done a few times before, we are asking again – What has happened since then? This is a report to our members and partners regarding some of the developments in our region.

There is always something going on. Alcohol and drug policy fields are continuously evolving and changing. As always – some of these changes are positive which we are supporting. Others raise concern and require quick interventions. These are selected cases. Many thanks to our active partners, who provided valuable information. And we welcome your feedback after you have read this short report.
