Children of Prisoners

Edited by Anna Eriksson and Catherine Flynn

 

Children of Prisoners focuses on a much-overlooked criminological issue: children whose parents are incarcerated. The papers are drawn from a range of disciplines and comprise a combination of research findings and practice reflections, addressing complementary areas and topics including: care planning for children whose primary carers are incarcerated; research ethics around this invisible and vulnerable group; the role of schools in supporting children and families of prisoners; sentencing and human rights in Australia and the UK; Indigenous issues and responses; and children of imprisoned parents in Scandinavia, which provides a contrasting and informative perspective. Authors are drawn from Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland and Denmark.

This special issue will meet the needs of a wide readership, from academics and research students, to criminal justice practitioners and policy-makers, both within the Australian and the international market.

Children of Prisoners is a special issue (Volume 32) of the journal Law in Context. You can purchase a single copy of this issue through this page, or subscribe to the journal from the journal page.
