<span style="font-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:#333333">Against the backdrop of McLaughlin's (2006: 60) prediction that the 'transition from conflict to peace' will present 'profound''challenges' for the media in Northern Ireland, the larger
 study from which this paper derives, explores the role of the media at a time of 'change' and 'transition'. Drawing on extensive qualitative interview data, this paper firstly explores how those working in the media identify the transition from conflict as
 a significant contextual influence on the role of the media in the 'new' Northern Ireland. Secondly, the paper focuses on the role of the media in creating negative representations and maintaining negative ideological constructions of children and young people,
 in particular those who are the most marginalised, those considered 'anti-social' within their communities and those 'in conflict with the law'. It notes that, in negotiating the impact of 'change' and 'transition', children and young people living in marginalised
 and segregated communities in Northern Ireland, continue to experience the legacy of the Conflict and 'persistent economic disadvantage'. Thirdly, this paper draws on a case study of what was framed in media and political discourse as youth 'orchestration'
 of, and involvement in, 'sectarian rioting' in Northern Ireland. Within a contextual media analysis it explores how 'fear' was mobilised to represent children and young people as 'dragging' communities 'back through the horrors of the past'. In concluding
 the paper, a discussion of this climate of hostility, exposes the symbiotic relationship between the media and police in the criminalisation and regulation of children and young people in Northern Ireland. In particular it concludes that the PSNIs decision
 within 'Operation Exposure', to publish photographs of children wanted for questioning was an egregious breach of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It proposes that this policing decision and policy ignored the UN Committee's previous criticisms
 of the UK State Party's approach to 'naming and shaming' children, while compromising the safety of children within their communities.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
