Alcohol Occasionals 2023: “Availability is the poor cousin of marketing and pricing”: Qualitative study of experts’ views on policy priorities around alcohol availability

July 7th 2023

The event recording is now available for our first Alcohol Occasional of 2023.


Dr Elena Dimova presented findings from a recent qualitative study, which explored key experts’ views in relation to policy priorities and considerations for alcohol availability. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 14 experts from third sector organisations, government, public health and alcohol licensing. Experts were asked about their views on alcohol availability in Scotland, including its place in the policy landscape, policy considerations in relation to protecting children and experiences in gaining support for policies.
