Example text

That is, the researcher makes explicit the research agenda (aims, objectives, purpose and intended outcomes) as well as any criteria involving the use, reuse and dissemination of visual data generated that directly involves participation from (or representation of) the respondent. In an applied visual sociology the provision of a verbal/written statement that outlines the above obligations, expectations and requirements of the researcher/respondent will also characterise this aspect of ‘obtaining consent’.

Nevertheless, despite this rapid expansion, the criticisms outlined by Ball and Smith (1992) relating to the ‘visual’ in sociology remain valid over two decades after they were initially raised. Namely, photographic materials typically remain ‘under-analysed, generally serving as little more than illustrative devices’ (Ball and Smith 1992, 12). Within those studies that prioritise data as illustration, it could be argued that the disciplinary visuality of sociology has been overlooked in preference for work that may be comparable to a form of academic reportage or sociological-journalism (Becker 1996).

As such, this chapter€ aims to introduce the reader to some of the key issues that form the underlying, and central, tenets of harm reduction as applied intervention in ‘real world’ settings. In the following sections, harm reduction is defined and its rationale, practice and principles are made explicit. Other sections summarise the political origins of harm reduction and the various modes of standardised, often internationally recognised, intervention. Perhaps most significantly (in the context of this study of street-based injecting environments), this chapter€concludes with an overview of what constitutes ‘safer’ injecting drug use from a harm reduction perspective.
