DCU Business School professors public opinion survey

Led by the Department of Defence, Professor Caroline McMullan, Gavin D. Brown, and Dr Ann Largey from Dublin City University Business School have launched a survey to capture public opinion about the national-level risks which we face on the island of Ireland.

The results of this survey will help build a shared understanding of the challenges to be addressed and will feed into a cross-government process to quantify the key risks that Ireland faces in the coming three years.

Speaking after the launch of the survey, Professor Caroline McMullan said:“The Business and Society research group in DCU Business School has worked on the National Risk Assessment for more than a decade. For the first time, we are gathering data on the public perception of risk across the island of Ireland at the same time as completing focus groups with national experts in each area of risk. We encourage maximum public engagement with our survey to ensure we get data from all counties.”

DCU ranked the sixth best university in the worl for its impact on Reduced Inequalities

Dublin City University has been ranked the sixth best university in the world for its impact on Reduced Inequalities in the latest Times Higher Education Impact Rankings based on delivering the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. One article of research linked to this goal is ‘Not just translation: DCU research shapes policy with a new model for crisis translation’.

In a crisis situation, timely, accurate and clear communication from trusted outlets is crucial. However, this is easier said than done. In reality, the requirements for effective crisis communication are numerous and complex. One frequently overlooked and under-resourced aspect is the need for multilingual and multicultural crisis communication. Today’s society is highly mobile: cities and towns tend to be multilingual microcosms. Furthermore, crises are transboundary: they do not observe international borders.

Prof Sharon O’Brien and Dr Patrick Cadwell have led research on this topic at DCU. Most recently, they have proposed the first-ever maturity model for crisis translation. Maturity models have previously been used to assess performance across various sectors. They can be thought of as road maps for identifying one’s current position and providing directions towards improvement. This preliminary model is now being updated with input from collaborators in the NGO, health and governmental sectors.
