This project, which resulted in an edited book, was funded by the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health in order to further disseminate the findings of research conducted by the National Drug Research Institute’s Indigenous Research Team. It brought together, in one collection, 14 journal articles and book chapters on topics such as liquor licensing, supply of alcohol, evaluation methods, and issues underlying Indigenous alcohol consumption. The collection of articles was published and distributed to all Indigenous organisations conducting substance misuse intervention projects and to various State/Territory and Commonwealth Government agencies.
