Why We Need to Think beyond the "Industry" in Alcohol Research and Policy Studies
Herrick, Clare
Drugs: Education, Prevention & Policy, v18 n1 p10-15 Feb 2011
The alcohol policy debate demands greater critical reflection on the complex and disaggregated nature of the alcohol industries in contrast to their frequent characterization as a coherent, monolithic and singular entity with a common goal. Such reflection is necessary in order to rethink the linked assumption that drinkers are vulnerable victims of the activities of industry and, in so doing, to start moving beyond the UK's current policy development impasse in creative and plausible ways.
