- Main goal is to identify and position the key stakeholders in B.C.’s responsible gambling narrative.
- Also looks at how RG constitutes/is constituted by BC’s gambling revenue distribution, discourses on problem gambling, and the technologies and processes connected to RG programs.
- How this information connects to the historic legitimation of gambling, creates a comprehensive picture of responsible gambling in BC, and sheds light on how gambling as an industry and as an activity is legitimated in Canadian society across time.
