Jonny Byrne is currently a Lecturer in Criminology in the School of Criminology, Social Policy and Politics at Ulster University. He teaches on issues relating to policing and security, countering violent extremism and psychology within the criminal justice system.
Jonny has completed a number of research projects on public attitudes to peace walls, paramilitary violence, young people’s participation in political violence, community experiences of public order policing in Northern Ireland, bonfires, and the manipulations of commemorations and celebrations in a contested society.
He works closely within a number of organisations including the PSNI and the Department of Justice (DoJ) on areas pertaining to ‘policing with the community, confidence and accountability’. In the previous two years Jonny has been awarded two ESRC Knowledge Exchange awards, were he worked with the British government and the DoJ on supporting policy making through academic research and analysis.
He is also a member of the European Union Radicalisation Awareness Network (Youth, Families and Community Working Group and the Police and Law Enforcement Working Group).
Jonny is a member of the Youth Advisory Group to the Northern Ireland Policing Board. He has also been responsible for two recent reports on radicalisation in Northern Ireland for the International donor Co-operation Ireland, and along with colleagues, he leads Ulster University’s contribution to the Gaming for Peace (GAP) project, which has been funded under the Horizon 2020 Securities Programme. This is an attempt to develop a programme to fill a training gap for EU personnel in Conflict Prevention and Peace Building Missions.
Dr Jonny Byrne, Institute for Research in Social Sciences, talks about his research into people’s thoughts of the removal of the Peace Walls in Belfast.
