From an academic perspective, Drug-Related Intimidation is a relatively new concept. Conceptually, our understanding of DRI has been analysed through the broader lens of drugs and crime more generally. Similarly, our understanding of interventions has also been informed largely by other distinct but related fields – such as gang membership or witness intimidation. Nonetheless, these areas do give us valuable insights, and where there has been work on DRI specifically, much of this has been carried out in Ireland, meaning that there is a good amount of information on DRI in an Irish context which provides a solid base to inform further inquiry. This study will further add to the Irish literature on DRI through examining the issue of DRI in the NEIC area of Dublin, drawing on the input of those living and working in the area, including those who have experience of Drug-Related intimidation – as victim, as perpetrator, or as both.
