Philosophy

  • CDUN believes that Ideally a policy is meant to be a set of purposive systemic of principles to guide the administrative, social governance and political decision making processes in order to achieve the most optimal and rational social outcomes. At a time when dramatic improvements are taking place in some sectors, e.g. communications and technology, improvement of the quality of life for many people has fallen far short of the potential that exists and the rising expectation of people who know life can be better .
  • CDUN recognizes that Social policy at its best, aims to improve human welfare and to meet human needs for education, health, housing and economic security. The concept of social policy are embedded in a larger vision which revolves around the principle of an enabling environment to raise the quality of life, wellbeing, welfare, social security, justice, employment, insurance, living conditions, rights, pensions, health care, social housing, family policy, social care, child protection, social inclusion, education policy, crime prevention, criminal justice, urban development, labour issues and poverty eradication.
  • CDUN acknowledges that drug use has always been associated with human history and CDUN accepts that Drugs have much to do with human behavior and experience, involving the self and the others on a continuum between medical pain and social pleasure, as an inescapable part of the fallible social human condition.
  • Sociologists and criminologists argue that we socially construct “the criminal” by selectively deciding which crimes to prosecute and which criminals to punish . As a society we selectively enforce our laws and selectively hold people accountable for their actions. Many people who engage in criminal behavior are not punished because as a society we don’t pursue them with the same ferocity we pursue the behaviors of others. Both crime and “the criminal” are socially constructed.
  • CDUN believes that the existence of the drug problem is largely the attitude of the majority of the public. , , and the answer lies in how we write drug laws, who writes the drug laws, and how drug laws and law enforcement are used as political tools by people at every level of government.
