The School of Law's pioneering research on children caught up in crime networks has been recognised by the university’s International Activity Challenge Fund 2017. The fund, intended to incentivise research activity which leverages international collaboration will support an expert workshop being held at the university in December to design more effective interventions to disrupt crime networks and improve children’s chances of escaping their influence.
Sean Redmond, Catherine Naughton and Eoin O’Meara Daly from the School of Law are leading this project.
Reacting to news of the award Sean Redmond said ‘We are really delighted with the award. We have selected the best available expertise to contribute to this complex design process. Experts have been invited from Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, United States and Canada. The fund will be used to support the participation of leading academics from U.S. and Canada making sure that we benefit from the widest pool of expertise…..’
