Paul Reilly cited by Public Policy Manager Nick Pickles
Dr Paul Reilly was cited in Nick Pickles post 'Amplifying voices of respect and tolerance across Northern Ireland' on 26 January 2016. Nick Pickles referred to a report by Dr Reilly and Orna Young which was commissioned by the Northern Ireland Community Relations Council. Their findings were that “social media provided a ‘safe space’ or distance for individuals and groups to express their views on what may be viewed as emotive issues.” Paul and Orna also highlight the importance of creating opportunities to hear alternative viewpoints and positions that may not be available ‘offline’.
