Abstract : The Drug Policy Modelling Project aims to develop new tools for policy makers to improve the ways in which evidence is used. A number of modelling approaches have been explored, and this monograph outlines the complex system scientists work. The first section outlines how drug use and drug markets are complex phenomena. Approaches from complexity - dynamical systems models; network theory; and multi-agent systems - are then outlined. The third section describes the development of a multi-agent system (the model called SimDrug) followed by a summary of the preliminary results arising from the model. The monograph concludes with considerations of future development of SimDrug. (Résumé d'auteur)
