Although ubiquitous globally, psychotic disorders show strong social gradients by both individual attributes and geographical region, established via ground-breaking psychiatric epidemiology beginning in the U.S. and subsequently exported to Europe and beyond.

Norsk narkotikapolitikk er i radikal endring. Bruk og besittelse av narkotika blir snart avkriminalisert. De såkalte «brukerorganisasjonene», som består av folk med egne erfaringer med skadelig rusbruk, spiller en stadig viktigere rolle i denne prosessen. PROMENTA-partnerne ved Institutt for sosiologi og samfunnsgeografi belyser dette, blant annet med basis i teori om såkalte «lay experts» og deres rolle i politikkutviklingen.
