Summary

An Exploratory Research Project on Working with Young People Involved in the Illegal Drugs Trade

Citywide commissioned this new study to undertake some exploratory research with a small, yet intensely representative sample, of practitioners working directly with or encountering drug-related intimidation and violence in the communities in which they worked. Dr Matt Bowden, Senior Lecturer at Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) carried out the research in December 2017. The researcher was tasked to undertake a series of interviews with practitioners working at local level, primarily in either youth work or in drug intervention services working in communities.
