Alcohol Harm in Different Stages of Life
The Nordic Welfare Centre coordinates a Nordic research network that focuses on how people are affected by their own and other people's drinking habits during different stages of life.
Project aims and results
Researchers are investigating the stages of life in which individuals are most vulnerable to other peoples’ drinking habits, what harm is caused, and the circumstances under which such harm occurs. The aim is also to find out how an individual’s socioeconomic status affects his/her vulnerability to being harmed by other people’s drinking.
The aim of the project is to contribute to the strengthening of Nordic efforts to prevent alcohol-related harm caused by other people’s drinking habits. This will be accomplished by collecting knowledge about when and in what groups such harm occurs.
