Special interest project: infants in the family justice system

A key recommendation from the scoping project was that the Nuffield FJO should, as part of its remit undertake new empirical research in areas where there are gaps in knowledge. Consultation with stakeholders confirmed that an initial project focused on infants in the family justice system was a clear priority for the first Nuffield Family Justice Observatory special interest project.
