Government Buildings LT1 (GBLT1)

Panel discussion on what a more just and supportive system would look like.

Come together for the final seminar of a three-part seminar series examining the historical, current, and future role of the State, prior to, during, and after families’ and children’s involvement in the child welfare system.

Seminar Three will bring together key stakeholders to discuss what a more just and supportive system that incorporates the obligations to Te Tiriti o Waitangi would look like. This discussion will highlight the ways multiple key stakeholders can work together to balance the need to identify and protect children from the worst consequences of abuse and neglect while making sure tamariki are not unnecessarily separated from whānau.

The panel format will involve brief comments from the distinguished panelists before a Q&A discussion. Audience participation is encouraged.
