Ethnographic Research

This research program focuses on the social contexts of alcohol and other drug (AOD) use and associated consequences. It includes ethnographic and other qualitative and mixed-method studies of AOD use, as well as research on the social contexts of science and policy. This research aims to inform policy and practice, and the design of more effective and equitable approaches to reducing AOD-related harm in Australia.
