Youth, Drugs and Alcohol- Social Science Approaches

Aarhus,

Among many young Europeans, alcohol and drugs are the preferred means of altering consciousness. These substances are used as part of various social activities either on weekends in bars, nightclubs, or music festivals or on weekdays. This course examines both alcohol and drug use that are perceived as problematic and unproblematic by young people themselves and it discusses how alcohol and drug-related problems and risks are perceived and addressed from various social science perspectives.
