Challenges of implementing an ethic of care in law and social policy

Thursday 17 October 2019   18:00 to 19:30


Professor Jonathan Herring, DM Wolfe-Clarendon Fellow in Law, Exeter College, University of Oxford


EP Abraham Lecture Theatre, Green Templeton College

This memorial lecture in honour of Sir John Hanson, former Warden of Green College, will explore the challenges facing those seeking to implement care ethics into public policy. It will seek to illustrate ways that a legal system can be sympathetic to care ethics and how in the future the legal system can be caring.

In exploring public policy in relation to care and the challenges that law and social policy face, the lecture will discuss personal budgets, abuse within a care setting and resolving disputes around those who lack capacity.

This lecture is sponsored by Research in Specialist and Elderly Care (RESEC) and organised under the auspices of the Care Initiative. More information about RESEC can be found here.

Please join us for what will be a thought provoking talk and lively discussion on care ethics and public policy.
