News Conference with Ethan Nadelmann

 MAILED:  Nov. 29, 2004

Ethan Nadelmann, widely regarded as the outstanding proponent of drug policy reform in the United States and abroad, will meet with the news media during his visit to the UW-Eau Claire campus Tuesday, Nov. 30.

He will participate in a news conference at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Presidents Room of Davies Center.

Nadelmann will give his Forum presentation, titled "Building a Political Movement to End the War on Drugs," at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Zorn Arena.

Described by Rolling Stone magazine as "the point man for drug-policy-reform efforts," Nadelmann is the author of "Cops Across Borders: The Internationalization of U.S. Criminal Law Enforcement," and a highly regarded expert on the international aspects of crime and law enforcement.

Nadelmann's writings on drug policy have appeared in numerous scholarly and mainstream journals and publications, including Science, Rolling Stone, National Review, Foreign Policy, Foreign Affairs, The Public Interest, Daedalus and American Heritage.

His critiques of U.S. drug control policies and recommendations regarding harm reduction strategies and other alternatives to punitive drug prohibition have attracted international attention and played a decisive role in stimulating the growing debate over drug policy worldwide. He's appeared on scores of radio and TV programs, including "Nightline"; "Today" and "The NBC Nightly News"; "48 Hours" and "The CBS Morning News"; CNN's "Larry King Live" and "Crossfire"; and public television's "Firing Line" and "The MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour."
