The Goldsmiths Report

The Goldsmiths Report uses quotes from 109 stakeholders (including researchers, industry members and policy users) to explore the relationship between gambling research and the politics of gambling liberalisation. The Gamsoc team is organising an afternoon conference on 3 April to present their findings and discuss the issues raised in the report and their implications for the field of gambling studies and beyond.

Two prominent researchers will speak about themes in their work which directly echo the issues tackled in the report. Peter Adams from the University of Auckland will speak about gambling industry funding, ethics and conflicts of interest. Mark Petticrew from the London School of Tropical Medicine will speak about Hans Selye, ‘the father of stress’, and his relationship with ‘Big Tobacco.’
