REPPP Project

The School of Law was delighted to hear  Justice Minister, Charlie Flanagan, refer to the work of Professor Sean Redmond and his REPPP, when launching a new health-led drugs policy. Minister Flanagan noted:

“I have asked my officials to develop proposals to tackle those who seek to lure children into the drug trade. My Department has been supporting a major initiative led by Professor Sean Redmond and the Research Evidence into Policy, Programmes and Practice in the University of Limerick. The specific focus of this project is to examine the recruitment by criminal networks of children in Ireland, and to make recommendations for evidence based interventions to disrupt this,” Minister Flanagan Department has been supporting a major initiative led by Professor Sean Redmond and the Research Evidence into Policy, Programmes and Practice in the University of Limerick.
