The Trouble with Peace:The Cease-Fires and Their Impact on Drug Use among Youth in Northern Ireland.
Higgins, Kathryn; McElrath, Karen
Youth & Society, v32 n1 p29-59 Sep 2000
Explores the extent and patterning of drug use among young people in Northern Ireland, linking them to the major cease fires. Examines media and professional perceptions alongside evidence constructed from multiple indicators of drug use. Results suggest that most drug use has not increased since the cease fires, with the exception of the heroin scene currently developing in Northern Ireland. (SM)
