Exploring the public face and hidden harm of alcohol-related crime in Ireland
Tuesday, November 15 2011
Royal College of Physicians, Dublin 2
When it comes to alcohol, crime and anti-social behaviour, it is individuals, families and communities that are left picking up the pieces. Alcohol Action Ireland’s upcoming conference, ‘Alcohol – Where’s the Harm?’, will examine the relationship between alcohol and “public” crime in Ireland. It will also seek to explore “hidden” crime – sexual violence and domestic violence.
Conference will be opened by Minister RÃ³isÃn Shortall.
The conference will be free to allow a maximum number of participants to attend. We would ask participants who are in a position to do so, to make a donation to Alcohol Action Ireland via our website www.alcoholireland.ie in order to help us cover our costs.
