Wednesday 13th April - Protecting children who are in conflict with the law
ChildHope will be facilitating a series of free seminars on principles and practices in child protection. The seminars are open to anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of work with vulnerable children. We hope that this will be a starting point for sharing the wealth of knowledge and skills held within agencies around the world on the practical application of child protection.
Seminar 3: Wednesday 13th April
The third seminar in the series will be delivered by Marianne Moore, Director at Justice Studio. Marianne has vast experience in the area of child justice, from developing policy and legislation to undertaking evaluations. She has specialist expertise in child protection and has worked extensively in the UK, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
The presentation will explore the challenges of working with and protecting children who are in conflict with the law. She will examine the differing views that exist towards these children and how being categorized as both an 'offender' can affect the perception of the child as both needing and deserving protection. The challenges faced in ensuring ethical practices whilst undertaking such work and the obstacles that organizations face will also be discussed. The presentation will draw on research in this area and will be illustrated by examples of work she has undertaken in Uganda, Sierre Leone and Afghanistan.
