The Dynamics of Police Legitimacy Among Young People - Launch of Research Report

The Dynamics of Police Legitimacy Among Young People - Launch of Research Report

5 Dec 2014 10:00AM - 5 Dec 2014 11:30AM

Description:

Guest Speaker - Caitríona Ruane MLA

Funded by the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister and carried out by researchers at Queen’s University Belfast, this two-year research project examines young people’s experiences with police officers and their perceptions of the police as fair and legitimate. It is centred on the following key questions:

  • What are the features of the experiences that impact on subsequent perceptions of legitimacy and willingness to cooperate with the police?
  • Do such experiences differ systematically between groups defined by, for example, socioeconomic background? Might they then risk further marginalizing certain groups?
  • What are the implications of young people’s sense of identity and belonging in society for their relationships with the police?

The study involves a diverse sample of around 800 14 to 16-year-olds from across Northern Ireland. It will aim to inform practices that serve the wellbeing and social inclusion of all young people in Northern Ireland.
