CLOSING KEYNOTE: The UK government’s approach to e-cigarettes
Time: 16:55 - 17:10
Date: Friday 9th December, 2022
Deborah Arnott will set out how the UK government’s approach to e-cigarettes is misunderstood and overstated both by those who support and oppose the role of these products in helping bring about the end of smoking. She will make a plea for both sides to recognise that the UK government positions harm reduction in tobacco control as just one tool in the toolbox, relevant to the UK because of the phase it has reached in the tobacco epidemic. She will examine how political theory can be used to explain how the UK got to this position, and what the implications are for the future of harm reduction in other countries, regions and globally.
