Dr Jo Staines has been invited to speak at the BAAF Alternatives to Custody roundtable event on 11 November 2014, drawing on her research into the use of foster care for children on remand. The Roundtable is part of the BAAF-led two-year international project exploring specialist fostering for children in conflict with the law, co-financed by the EC’s ‘Daphne III’ child-friendly justice initiative.
The BAAF initiative involves partners from Hungary, Bulgaria, Italy and England, and the International Juvenile Justice Conservatory and Eurochild, and advocates for the potential of specialist foster care to offer a positive alternative to custody for young people in conflict with the law.
