Abstract or Introduction
In Germany, 99.0 million hectoliters of alcoholic beverages were sold in the year of 2016. Although the per capita consumption of alcohol has dropped in the last 40 years in Germany, compared internationally, it continues to be one of the high-consumption countries in the world. Addictions are societal challenges that require the interaction of all social forces in the interest of the affected people.
The essay tries to consider the most critical governance challenges involved in tackling the issue , looks at the possibly weakest points of existing interventions vis-à-vis the problem and does a quick check of arguments for and against delegating authority to the supranational level.
