Conflict, Regulation and Marginalisation in the North of Ireland: The Experiences of Children and Young People

Deena Haydon, Phil Scraton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Based on primary research and consultations conducted over the last four years in the north of Ireland, this article considers the lives and experiences of children and young people in communities where the legacy of conflict and economic deprivation are most marked. It explores the reality of differential policing in communities where paramilitaries filled the policing deficit during the Conflict through informal 'justice' and punishment beatings. Finally, it considers the potential for change in a climate increasingly hostile towards children and young people, and the realisation of their rights.
