The core institutions and scope of the international drug control system are described. The system has grown in participation and particularly in scope and ambitions since it was studied in the early 1970s by Bruun and colleagues. Its premises are notably in conflict with the currently dominant ideologies of a free-market global economy although, as earlier, the United States plays a dominant role in the drug control system. At a time when it is seen as a failure in its primary aims both from inside and from outside, defenses of the system have ranged from rousing rhetorical appeals to efforts to “de-sensationalize” the issues.
