Background to Report : Debts, Threats, Distress and Hope: Towards Understanding Drug-Related Intimidation in Dublin's North East inner City

Ana Liffey Drug Project invite you to the launch of Debts, Threats, Distress and Hope: Towards Understanding Drug-Related Intimidation in Dublin’s North East Inner City, a report from the Drug-Related Intimidation Initiative.

The Drug-Related Intimidation Initiative (DRII) is a project run by Ana Liffey Drug Project and funded by Dublin’s North East Inner City Programme (NEIC) and Dublin City Council (DCC), and supported by an interagency steering group. The report will be launched by Paschal Donohoe TD, Minister for Finance and elected representative for Dublin Central.

As part of its work, the DRII was tasked with carrying out research on drug-related intimidation in the NEIC area. With the support of Technological University Dublin, the team designed and implemented a research process which included surveys, focus groups and interviews, and which was directed at better understanding drug-related intimidation in the NEIC area. The report being launched is the final output of this research process. The report sets out the findings regarding the nature of drug-related intimidation in the NEIC area drawn from this community consultation process as well as providing short practice guidelines and recommendations for responding to drug-related intimidation on a local and national level.
