The project has four core objectives:
1. To deepen understandings of the social and environmental factors underpinning alcohol consumption and attitudes towards drinking amongst the urban poor in CT and SA
2. To critically engage with the lived experiences that render alcohol a multifaceted “problem” across city spaces and, therefore, a policy challenge requiring innovative and cross-sectoral working.
3. To contribute to prescient debates in development studies, geography, urban studies and public health through advancing the literature on the interplays between alcohol and development in cities
4. To contribute a qualitatively-informed and current body of research to the ongoing popular and policy debate on alcohol and its relationship to broader urban concerns in CT, SA and beyond
