EMCDDA logoEuropol logo

The European drug market is a complex phenomenon, with new realities now emerging to challenge long-held certainties. Two EU agencies — the EMCDDA and Europol — have thus joined forces to provide the first state-of-the-art overview of this market in its entirety.

The analysis provided by the report is unique, combining insights from the EMCDDA’s monitoring and data analysis of Europe’s drug phenomenon in the global context with Europol’s operational understanding of trends in organised crime.
