Cloisters involved in Think Tank proposal


Declan O’Dempsey has just published an article with the Lexis Nexis Halsbury Law Exchange Think Tank in which he challenged the government to develop ideas on tackling abuse of children.

He proposes a general duty on public authorities to have due regard to the need to eliminate abuse, which goes beyond the limited duties under the Children Act 2004. He explores the effectiveness of such duties in promoting culture change as an alternative to learning lessons from tragedies children.
