Speaker: Professor Sandra Walklate (Liverpool)
The purpose of this presentation is to explore the influence of victim voices on criminal justice policy by reflecting upon the role of parents' voices. Some work has already considered the role of mothers and conceptions of motherhood in being heard yet it is also the case that fathers have had an influence too (from the father of Tim Parry to the father of Clare Wood.) This is suggestive of rather than victims constituting moral beacons but that there is also a place for parenthood in capturing the public imagination with differently informed gendered dynamics being salient for fathers and mothers.
