Vicky's research interests relate primarily to policing and police accountability. At present she is working on a book which looks at the history and development of policing in Ireland in the twentieth century with a particular emphasis on how social change alters the nature of policing. She is also interested in miscarriages of justice and the systems put in place by states to provide remedies in such cases.
