Alcohol & Sexual Violence
Calling Time on Sexual Violence and Alcohol: The Facts
Findings from the 2009 Rape and Justice in Ireland report (RAJI) indicate that alcohol involvement in rape in Ireland is among the highest in the world. Although alcohol does not cause sexual violence it may be used to excuse violent behaviour, to blame victims, and to incapacitate victims.
RCNI have prepared a series of short fact sheets and briefing documents based on evidence and findings which highlight the extent of the problem in Ireland.
