Brides and Martyrs: Protecting children from violent extremism (£)

Date:21 SEP 2015
Third slide
Legal Academic and Barrister
This article analyses the recent cases where the courts have sought to prevent children and their parents travelling to Syria and other war zones and the legal context including the statutory duty now imposed on public authorities to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

The article explores the multifarious nature of these cases (including forced marriage and child sexual exploitation), the problems posed for social workers (with the danger that they are being recruited to police families in a politically charged context) and the human rights issues that arise. The challenges it poses for the family justice system are new with the danger that, without skill and care, children will be separated from their parents because of religious and political belief.

The full version of this article appears in the September 2015 issue of Family Law.
