Myths and Realities 17: Addictive Personality

What drives addiction?

Addictions to legal and illegal drugs, alcohol and tobacco are generally considered to be serious social problems. But what drives addiction? Are our compulsions biologically or socially driven? Are some people inevitable 'addicts'? And, what are the social problems caused by addictions?

Join us for informed and lively discussion and debate. The expert panel will include Professor Gerda Reith, University of Glasgow and Professor David Nutt, Imperial College London, and will be chaired by Claire Fox, Institute of Ideas.

Supported by The Economic and Social Research Council and Academy of Social Sciences
