CCLE Awarded Official Consultative Status
with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council

Following a year-long application process, (itself an education in large-scale bureaucracy) the CCLE has been awarded official status as a consulting organization to the United Nations’ Economic and  Social Council. We strongly believe in the strength and efficacy of smaller organizations to address and help resolve issues of global importance. This UN endorsement gives greater visibility and strength to the CCLE’s positions on global drug policy, technology issues, and other international human rights issues that we may bring before the United Nations in this capacity.

This issue of the American Journal of Bioethics is a great place to get up-to-date on the importance of this emerging field of study which is already beginning to influence law and policy.
