IJCC Video 1: The Improving Justice in Child Contact project
From Chung-Yan Kong on January 14th, 2021
Improving Justice in Child Contact is a project exploring child contact decisions in families affected by domestic abuse. It is funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020). Child contact is understood to be the systems and court processes which decide whether and how a child sees a parent that they are not living with.
It is a partnership project across Bulgaria, Cyprus, Portugal, Romania and Scotland.
Sue McKeller, Scottish Women’s Aid, recorded this this video (in English) with Professor Kay Tisdall, University of Edinburgh. Both of them are from the Scotland team of the IJCC project. They give a general introduction to the project, and also raise the issues around domestic abuse and child contact, and the two participation models.
More participation resources can be found on the project website.
