Chapter 3 describes the processes by which the EU policy on addictions has been established and institutionalized. The chapter examines to what extent the EU influences the governance of addictions at member-state level and the resulting typologies. The chapter analyses the main achievements and challenges in the current European policy twenty-seven member states have built their own drug policies. Two main matters have to be taken into account: the broader context and geopolitical developments, such as the trafficking flows in Europe; and the leading and coordinating role hold by international organizations—particularly the United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization (WHO)—whose policy orientations, reports and resolutions have influenced the development of EU policy.
