Diageo's 'Stop Out of Control Drinking' Campaign in Ireland: An Analysis

It has been argued that the alcohol industry uses corporate social responsibility activities to influence policy and undermine public health, and that every opportunity should be taken to scrutinise such activities. This study analyses a controversial Diageo-funded ‘responsible drinking’ campaign (“Stop out of Control Drinking”, or SOOCD) in Ireland. The study aims to identify how the campaign and its advisory board members frame and define (i) alcohol-related harms, and their causes, and (ii) possible solutions.

The Irish European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) Report 2015

This report is based on the 2015 European Schools Project for Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) Survey carried out in Ireland and is the sixth Irish data-collection wave of ESPAD. It is based on data from more than 1,400 Irish students surveyed in 2015. The most important goal of the ESPAD survey is to monitor trends in alcohol and other drug use among 15-16 year-olds and to compare trends between countries and groups of countries. It also provides the opportunity to observe the changes in these trends in Ireland over the six waves in the past 20 years.
