The chapter explores the main idea of the book, focusing on the variances in defining, understanding, and addressing addictive substances and behaviours in the European continent. A general view of the different parts of the book ties together analyses of language use, politics, governance, and stakeholders, showing that the variations across the European continent is an under-researched area that could greatly contribute to, but also question, certain governing dogma in the field of addiction studies.

Keywords:   addiction studies, dependence, addiction policy, substance abuse, addictive behaviour, gambling, policy analysis, stakeholders
