Children of Prisons will focus 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.
