Vision Statement

My vision is to produce thought provoking quality research which is relevant to academics, practitioners and wider society. Growing up in post-conflict Northern Ireland, I became aware of the existence of competing public discourses. This experience fuelled my desire to investigate how public messages are produced and disseminated, alongside their impact in a divided society and in contemporary democracies generally. I believe exploring the roles and relationships of elite actors and organisations, such as government and the media, is paramount to understanding the workings – and health – of democratic societies.
