Welcome to Policed in Ireland with me, Dr Vicky Conway. In this, our first episode, we listen to Majo Rivas discuss her experiences of an Garda Síochána, both in reporting hate crime and in the immigration process. Fiona Finn from NASC and Dr Lucy Michael also join us to provide context around many of the issues raised by Majo.
Why are migrants slow to engage with police? What do these encounters mean for trust in the police? This is Policed in Ireland. To hear the full interview with Majo and support this project please join us on: patreon.com/tortoiseshack
