THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED
Men & Alcohol: what's next?
This is the fourth and final event in the 'Men & Alcohol' seminar series co-hosted by SHAAP and the Institute of Alcohol Studies (IAS). An expert panel will discuss the following questions:

  •  How will men be affected by alcohol in the future?
  • How can alcohol related harms to men be prevented or reduced?

  • How do we strike a balance between state intervention and individual responsibility?

These events will provide an opportunity for policy makers, academics, activists, and media representatives to discuss critically topics related to men and alcohol use. The intention is to stimulate thinking, challenge some attitudes and perceptions, and to think about future research and policy priorities. A summary of the discussions from the seminars will be collated into a report, which will be disseminated after the events. This series follows the women and alcohol seminar series held in 2017, the report for which can be found here.
