In collaboration with UNICEF, university students across Ireland, have put together this exhibition to provide a snapshot of the lives of 20 young people forced to flee their homes. The aim is to facilitate a wider conversation on campuses around Ireland about the rights of children and young people and the responses we have made as individuals, communities, nationally and as Europeans to refugees and migrants seeking a safer and better future.

In most cases, it is clear to journalists and editors what is and what is not in the public interest. But it is also a complex question, especially when privacy is concerned. In this panel discussion, journalists and legal experts will discuss the tricky legal and ethical questions that members of the media must often confront when covering important issues. The discussion will take place against the backdrop of recent University Times reporting on the Knights of the Campanile’s hazing, which has attracted national attention for the ethical questions it raises.
The panelists will look at the methods used in The University Times’s report on hazing, as well as addressing issues it has raised more broadly – public interest journalism, investigative reporting, privacy rights and freedom of the press.
Where: Edmund Burke Lecture Theatre, Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin College Green, Dublin

Tom is one of the busiest Irish headline acts on the circuit. Playing every major festival and club here and abroad, he has recently toured with MTV star Tom Green and Mock The Week regular Tom Stade. With his own sell-out shows in Edinburgh, Cork, Leicester, Dublin, and Barcelona, Tom has gone on to support the likes of Nina Conti (Cork Opera House), Michael Winslow (of Police Academy fame), Neil Delamare and Tommy Tiernan as part of their nationwide tours. A regular on Irish TV, Tom starred alongside the legendary Rik Mayall in Season 1 of the award-winning TV series Damo & Ivor. He also featured in the hit RTE show Bridget & Eamon as your everyday oddball neighbour Paddy d’Pervert (it’s French!).
