    Abstract

    Despite being such a long-standing issue in Scotland and one now equally high profile elsewhere in the UK, there remains a dearth of research into why young adult males become involved in alcohol-related knife-crime. This paper will assess the extent of alcohol-related weapons use in Scotland’s Young Offender population and examine how these issues are linked in this high risk group.
