In: News Published: Tuesday 16 March 2021


Elise Jeremiah will appear on an expert panel alongside eminent speakers, including Sir James Munby at a symposium on 16th March hosted by Royal Holloway University on Equality and Rights: Contemporary Challenges in the Child Protection & Family Justice Systems before and during the Pandemic.  

At the event on World Social Work Day panel members will reflect on the important concerns facing children and families and professions who work with them during these challenging times. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing social and economic inequalities facing marginalised groups. The rights of individuals, and groups in such a context present a keen challenge for professionals working in the child protection and family justice systems.

The symposium, organised jointly by the Departments of Law and Criminology, & Social Work, brings together important debates to discuss key issues of concern. Located within a framework of human rights and social justice, the symposium seeks to contribute to scholarly, and policy and practice understandings.

Those wishing to attend the event via MS Teams between 2pm and 4.30pm on 16th March 2021 can register to attend at the following link: Register to attend
