Peer2Peer - Reinforcing Peer's Involvement in Outreach Work

The EU Drugs Strategy 2013-2020 develops an approach to the phenomenon of drugs use. In that context several actions are proposed to achieve the overall objective of the EU Drugs Strategy with three cross-disciplinary themes of (i) coordination, (ii) international cooperation and (iii) information, research, monitoring and evaluation. The Peer2Peer project aims at the capacity-building of CSO through the use of scientific knowledge to increase the efficacy of cooperation practices between key-actors in the outreach work (professionals, outreach workers (OW), peers, small-scale drug dealers and police forces), emphasising the focus on the dyad “peer - Professional”. The principles inspiring this approach come from the long European tradition of rights and liberties that empower citizens to actively participate in society. (Stand Mai 2021)
