Losing Your License to Drink

If you are looking for some airplane reading, please pick up the latest issue of the Brown Digest of World Affairs. It includes an article on the 24/7 Sobriety program for alcohol-involved offenders. Beau Kilmer and I co-authored it. The article reviews the work Beau and his colleagues have done evaluating the effects of the program and then discusses my work disseminating it to policymakers in the United Kingdom. We also discuss the ideological resistance the program encounters despite its strong evidence of reducing drink-driving fatalities and domestic violence.
