The National University of Ireland is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Dr Vicky Conway. She was a lecturer in the School of Law and Government at Dublin City University and a graduate of University College Cork, University of Edinburgh and Queen’s University Belfast. She had previously worked in the University of Kent, QUB, the University of Limerick and the University of Leeds. She was both a graduate and a friend of NUI. Chancellor Dr Maurice Manning said that he has long been an admirer of her work and career. Prof Daire Keogh, President of DCU, described her as “an exceptional teacher and a wonderful colleague.”

With a focus on policing in Ireland, Dr Conway was a dedicated and skilful voice for the vulnerable. On her podcast Policed, she platformed the experiences of people, often marginalised, in their encounters with Ireland’s policing system. Her expertise was highly regarded; she was a member of the Commission on the Future of Policing, as well as serving two terms as a member of the Policing Authority. As the great many tributes can attest, there is no corner of Irish society that has not benefited from her tireless work and her immensurable impact.
