Résumé:   This issue contains selection of papers from the 2nd Annual Conference of the International Society for the Study of Drug Policy (ISSDP), which was held in Lisbon, Portugal in March 2008. The goal of the ISSDP, as the name suggests, is to promote research related to policies on how societies respond to illegal drugs and to create an international community of scholars interested in this topic. Whilst papers on alcohol and tobacco are not excluded, policies towards those substances are used mainly as a foil for understanding those directed at cannabis, cocaine, heroin and other controlled drugs. The second conference attracted 110 participants from about 20 countries, mostly from developed nations. A selection of papers from the first conference, in Oslo in March 2007, appeared as a special issue of Contemporary Drug Problems (2008, Vol. 35, November 2–3). [First lines]
