areas of expertise

Angelina Brotherhood is a doctoral researcher at the Department of Sociology, University of Vienna, Austria. Her thesis explores how substance users interpret socio-spatial arrangements differently and, consequently, why people use substances in some places but not in others.

She previously worked at the Public Health Institute on a number of international research projects to inform European drugs policy and practice. A key project during her time at the Institute was the European Drug Prevention Quality Standards (EDPQS) project which sought to help practitioners and decision-makers develop the quality of drug preventive activities across Europe (more information available from http://www.prevention-standards.eu). As a Visiting Research Fellow, Angelina continues to support the Centre on EDPQS-related activities.

Angelina has also undertaken consultancy work for organisations such as the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). As a UNODC consultant, she supported the development of the International Standards on Drug Use Prevention (http://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/prevention/prevention-standards.html).

Angelina currently serves on the Board of the European Society for Prevention Research (EUSPR) (http://euspr.org/) where she leads on activities to support early-career members of the Society.
