Exposure to Community Violence and Political Socialization among Adolescents in Northern Ireland
Shepherd, Linda
Policy Futures in Education, v5 n3 p386-400 2007
This study evaluates the effects of adolescent exposure to cross-community violence, intense paramilitary operations, aggression, and intimidation in Northern Ireland. Using publicly available survey data gathered by agencies in Northern Ireland, the research examines the effects of exposure to political violence with focus upon the manner by which adolescents have become politically socialized, the development of political attitudes, and the presence and level of psychological responses to this environment. Special attention is paid to cultural context, gender, and religious differences. (Contains 9 tables and 2 notes.)
