The NZ-UK Link Foundation Visiting Professor,

Emeritus Professor Anne Smith of
Otago University, New Zealand

 

Children have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse and neglect, but New Zealand’s statistics for child maltreatment, hospital admissions, notifications and foster placements are disturbing. The level of alarm at this state of affairs, has heightened with recent cases of child deaths (such as the 3 month-old Kahui twins in 2006).  Green and White papers from the government on Vulnerable Children show that policy changes are forthcoming, involving common assessment tools, agency co-ordination, the creation of Children’s Teams, and evidence-based policies. This lecture looks critically at the policy recommendations and argues for a greater consideration for children’s participation rights, strengths rather than deficits, awareness of causes (especially poverty), and family support rather than surveillance.

Chair: Dame Gillian Pugh, DBE

Respondent: Professor Harriet Ward, CBE, Director of the Centre for Child & Family Research, University of Loughborough

Arrive 17:45 for 18:00 Start
Followed by Reception in The Picture Gallery,  The Foundling Museum
