Book launch: Stemming the tide of alcohol

Stemming the tide of alcohol: liquor licensing and the public interest examines legislation on how alcohol is sold, promoted and consumed, and the implementation and enforcement of the regulations, from the perspective of reducing alcohol harm.

The book provides policy makers, public health advocates, researchers, community groups and members of the general public with comprehensive information about the regulation of Australian alcohol markets and tools and interventions that have the potential to reduce alcohol harm.

The launch will involve a Q&A session facilitated by the author of Speechless, James Button from the Grattan Institute. Panellists include:

  • Sondra Davoren, Senior Legal Advisor, Cancer Council Victoria
  • Dr Peter Frost, Chief Executive Officer/Deputy Auditor-General, Victorian Auditor General’s Office
