Research Evidence into Policy Programme (REPPP)  

Dr. Sean Redmond, 26th October, 12.30-2pm

Millstream Common Room, UL

The School of Law has been selected to establish the Research Evidence into Policy Programme (REPPP) project to significantly improve the evidence base in relation to youth crime policy making in Ireland. The project which was launched in September is fully funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. Sean Redmond, a civil servant from the Department of Children and Youth Affairs has been seconded for three years to lead this project. The REPPP project is a new type of venture, moving from a relationship with government departments based on commissioning individual research projects to a longer term strategic relationship, jointly tackling complicated policy challenges. Sean will outline the background to the REPPP project, its emerging multi-faceted work-plan and opportunities for colleagues to support and collaborate with the project. 

Under our research strategy, the School of Law is committed to breaking down the narrow confines of discipline specialism to provide integrative and holistic research possibilities which are translational in character. As a multidisciplinary project, REPP seeks extensive contributions beyond the more specialised legal sphere. We are therefore holding this event to introduce all relevant faculty from every discipline in the University to the potential for new and innovative research in the area of youth crime policy that this project provides. We would like to see as many people as possible at this event both as potential contributors to this programme but also to hear about potential long term strategic relationships for research projects.
