Lunchtime Seminar: When Children Attack Children
Whether it is knife crime in London, or the recent case of two young boys tortured in Edlington, stories where children attack children both fascinate and frighten the public. Some say that Britain’s attitude to child crime has hardened over the last two decades. In the UK, we lock them up at a younger age and in greater numbers than in other European countries.
But what is it like for the reporters working on these stories? How far are they swayed by the clamour for retribution, and what does it take for the adult journalist to see clearly the child on the other end of the knife?
Discussion will be led by Ronke Philips, a correspondent with ITV news and current Ochberg Fellow and Gavin Rees, Director, Dart Centre Europe with journalists, filmmakers and child trauma experts .
This event will last from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
