Professor Elspeth Webb is a retired community paediatrician and Professor in Child Health at Cardiff University who has worked for decades in children’s rights, child protection, health inequalities, and building a human rights approach to medical training in Wales and beyond.
As children continue to fall through the cracks of the Covid-19 economy, the debate on re-opening schools sees marginalised children used as props, and renewed calls for prison abolition push us to address the systemic causes of crime and violence, it has never been more urgent for the left to – finally – think of the children.
This public lecture was given online on Saturday 20th June 2020.
