Drugs Law and Legal Practice in Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Singapore and Vietnam

Drugs Law and Legal Practice in Southeast Asia co-authored by Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society Director, Professor Tim Lindsey and Asian Law Centre Director, Professor Pip Nicholson, investigates criminal law and practice relevant to drugs regulation in three Southeast Asian jurisdictions: Indonesia, Singapore and Vietnam.

These jurisdictions represent a spectrum of approaches to drug regulation in Southeast Asia, highlighting differences in practice between civil and common law countries, and between liberal and authoritarian states. This book offers the first major English language empirical investigation and comparative analysis of regulation, jurisprudence, court procedure, and practices relating to drugs law enforcement in these three states.

This book by Professor Tim Lindsey and Professor Pip Nicholson is a product of a major collaborative four year project funded by the Australian Research Council to investigate criminal law and practice in the region.
