Research Interests

Raymond Boyle graduated in Media Studies and History from the University of Ulster and completed an MA by research in the School of Communications at Dublin City University. He worked for three years in the Communication Studies Department at Glasgow Caledonian University before joining Stirling University. He moved to CCPR in January 2007.

Recent research projects have included a study of the UK Film Council; media rights and sport: the media and the Commonwealth Games 2014 and a study of sports journalism and social media usage.

His profile across academic, funded research and consultancy includes work within the broad areas of cultural and media policy. In particular he has developed an international reputation for research in the area of media and sports, which has included work on various aspects related to media policy (such as the relationship between new media and sports content) as well as the relationship between sport and its wider cultural and economic impact on society.

He has acted (2010 and 2011) as an academic advisor to the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) on media and entrepreneurship issues and with the Byron Review (2008) into Children and New Technology, published by the Department of Children, Schools and Families/DCMS. He has been involved in a number of research and consultancy projects around media issues, these have been funded by the Broadcasting Standards Council (1998); the European Institute for the Media (1999, 2000); The Home Office (2001, 2002); The Scottish Parliament (2001); FIFA (2003); DCMS (2005) and the AHRC (2009/11, 2012 - 2014). He is currently working with UEFA (2011 - ) and the University of Lausanne in the delivery of their Certificate in Football Management (CFM)
