Alcohol-related Harms in Nightlife Settings on the Island of Ireland
Night scene

A Knowledge Exchange hosted by the North South Alcohol Policy Advisory Group. In December 2020 the North South Alcohol Policy Advisory Group hosted a Knowledge Exchange to share evidence and policy developments relevant to reducing alcohol harm in night-life settings. 

Evidence is emerging on how to balance the pleasures and benefits of night life in our towns and cities with the need for a safe environment where the risk of harm, and sometimes tragedy, is minimised. 

This report provides a summary of the presentations made on the day, and the core points of discussion which ensued.
