The event for GW4 academics will be co-hosted by the Bristol Poverty Institute's Livelihoods and Debt Research Cluster and the Bristol Hub for Gambling Harms Research. The event is open to academics at all career stages and from any relevant discipline to join for a couple of hours of thought-provoking discussion on the links between poverty, marginalisation, gambling-related harms and other harms including illicit livelihoods, addiction, and criminal behaviours.

The aim of this event is to expose researchers to complementary research interests and expertise around the interconnected topics of poverty, marginalisation, gambling harms and other harms across the GW4 institutions and to identify potential spaces for synergy and collaboration in the future. Attendance is encouraged not only from those whose work is already applied or relevant to these interconnected subjects, but also researchers whose work does not currently have any explicit link but could potentially be of relevance (even if it is a couple of steps removed – other colleagues may be able to bridge that gap).
