REPPP project research showcased

Prof Sean Redmond was invited to present a keynote speech at the Annual Prosecutors Conference in Dublin Castle on the 25th of November 2017
In April 2017, the REPPP research team successfully organised a conference
entitled Perspectives on Hidden Victims. Findings of Three New Innovative Studies, that attracted over 100 delegates from practice and academia. Dr Sean Redmond outlined the study’s objectives, the limitations of the extant knowledge on children’s involvement in adult criminal networks, key research findings, and policy implications arising from the Greentown study. The paper also outlined important work being undertaken by the School of Law in 2017 to replicate and broaden the original Greentown study to gauge the generalisability of findings and assist in the design of new interventions. You can watch a recording of this conference below.
The first two Greentown project events have been held at the University of Limerick on the 15th June and 4th September, 2017 with another two-day workshop on the 12th and 13th December, 2017. The workshops aim to combine knowledge from experts, both on the ground and in academia, to inform an intervention for children involved in prolific offending in criminal networks.
