The Politics of Child Protection
Date:7/3/2014

THE number of maltreated children in England could be as much as 90 per cent higher than official figures show, claims a University of Huddersfield expert, the author of a wide-ranging new book on UK child protection policies.

Nigel Parton who is Professor of Applied Childhood Studies at the University calls for a broad-based, sensitive and responsive set of policies, in contrast to the "punitive set of interventions" that he argues have been adopted by the present government.

A series of well-respected "prevalence studies" based on interviews suggests that as few as 10 per cent of cases of child abuse come to the notice of official agencies, said Professor Parton, although the aftermath of the Jimmy Saville revelations has resulted in a greater readiness to talk about cases of abuse.

It examines the developments and changes of policies from the post-war years to the present day, with the impact of cases such as that of Baby P being analysed. Professor Parton's roster of publications includes three other books dealing with official policy. The latest was Safeguarding Childhood in 2006. But there had been such sweeping changes since then that he realised a completely new book, rather than a revised edition, was needed.
