When a parent is incarcerated: International Perspectives On A Child’s Journey

Following the success of the inaugural INCCIP conference in New Zealand in 2017 this conference provides a unique opportunity for all those with an interest in the impact of parental imprisonment from across the world to network and share ideas and best practice. Academics, advocates, community based organisations, parents and children of prisoners are all invited to attend. Abstracts for presentations and work-shops are invited on any subject relating to research and practice in this field.

People are coming from around the world to participate in the second INCCIP conference at the University of Huddersfield on 12-14 August.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Samantha Callan (co-author of the Lord Farmer report on strengthening family ties with prisoners);
  • Liz Ayre, Director of Children of Prisoners Europe (COPE);
  • Diego Quiroz, Acting Head of Strategy, Children and Young People’s Commissioner, Scotland, and;
  • Anye Young, author of recently published ‘Teen Guide to Living with Incarcerated Parents’.

We have an exciting programme for the conference. The current list of presentations (title only) is attached here
