leave a comment »


At the launch of Fair Game, the Gambling in Europe team were joined by esteemed academics Peter Adams (University of Auckland), Mark Petticrew, and Justin Parkhurst (both London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) who each gave a paper.

Over at our Goldsmiths pages you can find the full audio recordings and accompanying literature from Peter Adams and Justin Parkhurst’s papers, alongside Rebecca Cassidy’s introduction to the Fair Game report.

A discussion on the current state of gambling research followed, which you can listen to below.

Part one features Steve Donoghue, Marc Etches (RGT), Matt Zarb Cousins (CFG), Jim Orford (Gambling Watch), Peter Adams (University of Auckland), Rebecca Cassidy (Goldsmiths) and Jonathan Wolff (UCL and RGT), among others.

Part two includes contributions from Eddie Chan (CNHLC), Gary Fooks (Bath), Heather Wardle (NatCen), David Miers (RGSB), Liz Karter (Level Ground Therapy) and Adrian Scarfe (Gamcare), among others. At the 22:00 minute mark Jim Orford (Gambling Watch) sums up the discussion and urges us all to ‘clean up our act’.
