BACKGROUND

The project is the successor to a study on “Juvenile Alcohol Scenes” carried out by the European Centre in collaboration with the Universities for Applied Sciences of Vienna and St. Pölten some years ago. It aims to put policy-relevant results of the first study into practice and to contribute to the establishment of sustainable structures of collaboration between the stakeholders shaping the public sphere, i.e. mainly the police and mobile social services but also the gastronomy and the media.

METHODS

To achieve these aims a mix of methods is used, among them participant observations of relevant activities of selected stakeholders in the public sphere; qualitative interviews and group discussions with selected representatives of stakeholders; content analysis of observation and interview protocols; content analysis of relevant articles published in selected local and national media; literature review and reviews of related practice projects; working groups of stakeholders on local and state level.The public conference organised after the first year attracted a lot of interest and proved to be a success.
