The Bremer Institut für Drogenforschung (BISDRO - Bremen Institute for Drug Research), founded in 1986, is an independent department of the Bremer Institut für Kriminalpolitik (BIK - Bremen Institute for Criminal Policy), parallel to the other independent department, the Bremer Institut für Kriminalpolitikforschung (KRIPF) (Bremen Institute for Criminal Policy Research).
The BISDRO encompasses two branches: the Research-Institute and Archives for Drug Literature ARCHIDO.
The main philosophy focus of BISDRO is on drug-policy, drug-culture, drug-history, drug regulation and the positive-negative ambivalent character of any legal and illegal drug.
Its scientific basis rests in the social sciences - esp. sociology and politology, in the cultural sciences - esp. European ethnology and subcultural ethnography, in psychology - social-psychology and psychoanalysis -, and in law - criminal law and criminology.
The institute combines theoretical, methodological and practice-oriented interests especially in an international comparative context. It is working in the field of grounded theory, teaching and training. It also functions as advisory board for an alternative accepting drug policy and pertaining institutions and associations.
As an institute of the University of Bremen it is located in two adjoining faculties, the faculty of law and the faculty of social sciences.
