Event description
Education as a critical piece of the prevention and early intervention jigsaw

About this event

With a new academic year, school is back but not for all children. Educational exclusion can take a variety of forms and generates lifelong impact, particularly in the context of missing critical windows for prevention and early intervention.

Join us on October 21st as we explore children’s often precarious sense of belonging at school and the systems that enable exclusionary practices. Our speakers include those who research and advocate in the area of educational equality and those with lived experience of exclusion from the education system.

Our guest speakers

Jane Mulcahy and Lindsey Liston

Jane Mulcahy is a Research Fellow in Youth Justice at the University of Limerick. Her PhD in Law (UCC) explored the topic of “Connected Corrections and Corrected Connections: post-release supervision of long sentence male prisoners. Jane has worked as a researcher in the area of criminal justice, penal policy and social justice since 2005’. She hosts a podcast called “Law and Justice” and developed a three-part documentary series “Humanising Human Rights”.

Lindsey’s area of interest and speciality lie in social and educational inequalities and the role education plays in shaping life outcomes. She received her PhD from NUI Maynooth, where her research explored the relationship between school discipline, non-school completion and involvement with the Justice system, from a critical perspective. Lindsey has over 12 years experience in the Community and Voluntary Sector across Early Years, Youth Justice, Family Support and Community Development in underserved communities in Limerick.

Anne Marie Quilligan is a Social care Worker with the Tipperary Rural Travellers Project. She is well known for her advocacy work, in particular around Traveller’s experiences of homelessness, unequal access to education and oppression. We should also include in Anne Marie’s bio that she is incredibly responsive, having stepped in to speak at the eleventh hour for a colleague who couldn’t make it. Thank you Anne Marie!
