Summary: This paper adopts a critical view of the Senlis proposals about licensing opium cultivation in Afghanistan, arguing that their underlying principles – economic, social and political – diverge only marginally from those underpinning previous approaches and have little potential for success under current political conditions. The paper concludes that, despite many imperfections, the current policies in place may be optimum given both Afghanistan's present situation and the structural problems inherent in the global war against drugs.
