Guest Speakers Caitríona Ruane MLA Stewart Finn, Include Youth 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.
