Faith’s first sole-authored monograph entitled: Children, Young People and the Press in a Transitioning Society: Representations, Reactions and Criminalisation, was published in 2018 as part of Palgrave Macmillan’s Socio-Legal Series. This monograph built on Faith’s funded research on the media representations of children and young people in Northern Ireland and other post-conflict societies. This research has been referred to by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child and has been cited in the High Court in Northern Ireland, the UK Court of Appeal and in the Youth Court in Aotearoa New Zealand. Faith’s latest research and recent publications focus on: children’s rights in the digital age; journalists’ use of children’s social media content; ‘naming and shaming’ of children in conflict with the law on social media; the issue of pre-charge identification and media regulatory frameworks in the digital age.
Faith is also a member of the Journal's International Editorial Board.
