Crime, Media, Fear of Crime, Ireland, Northern Ireland
A chapter exploring media and crime in Ireland and Northern Ireland addresses two signally different jurisdictions. While much work from Ireland relates to the media’s role in a 1996 moral panic on gangland crime, the literature in Northern Ireland has encompassed a jurisdiction moving from a critical perspective on state/media relations to one now exploring representations of ‘ordinary’ crime. The chapter provides an overview of the content of crime in the media as well as public attitudes to crime in the two jurisdictions within the context of international literature and theory.
