Short-Term Scientific Mission: The Application of “Alternative Development” Principles Applied in Brazilian Urban Settings.

John Collins visited Brazil from 18 to 24 September 2023 where he met with many researchers and policy-makers in the area of drug policy, organised crime and security. Discussions were held on various topics such as the dynamics of urban drug markets and policing in Brazil and its impact on communities. In the framework of his research John visited key places of interest such as the region’s largest illegal market, in Sao Paulo where he met with local vendors and observed the daily police operation to clear and close the market.
