Drug Safety Testing: How do we measure success?

This public lecture will explore the role of drug safety testing in relation to harm reduction and public policy.
Places are strictly limited. Registration 2pm. Public Lecture 2.30pm sharp.
Professor Measham has conducted research for over two decades across a broad area of criminology and social policy, exploring changing trends in legal and illegal drugs; the night time economy and the socio-cultural context to consumption; gender; the regulation and policing of intoxication; electronic music scenes and club cultures; issues of deterrence, displacement and desistance; and broader policy implications. A key feature of her research has been the development of in-situ methods of data collection in pubs, clubs and festivals, a working environment with which she is familiar, having spent her early adulthood working in bars and clubs across several continents in various guises. for more details see https://www.dur.ac.uk/sociology/staff/profile/?id=11362
