The "Russian Drug Map" developed by the IRL is recognized as the best research project using open data at the Second All-Russian contest "Open Data in the Russian Federation".
Created by researchers at the Institute for the Rule of Law at the European University at St. Petersburg, the project utilizes primary crime records to show which drugs were seized by the police in the country at district level. This level of detail is unprecedented in the world. It offers a new look at drug crimes as well as allows to compare the drug seizures by the police and the Federal Narcotics Service (FSKN) at regional level.
