Professor Jackie Turton Professional Inaugural Lecture
I've been asked to plug the Professional Inaugural Lecture by Professor Jackie Turton from the Department of Sociology at the University on 24 April:
Are some children better protected than others?
There is little doubt that those involved in child protection are dedicated, assessing risk and preventing abuse the majority of the time. However, numerous scandals and enquiries about child sexual abuse and exploitation have exposed gaps in our system. This lecture considers some of the underlying factors creating barriers to protecting children.
