Together with Family Law in Partnership, Researching Reform hosted a debate in the Palace of Westminster on  Monday 12th December, 2011 on the riots this August and what part the family justice system could play in supporting families and easing social unrest.

The speeches for the evening are now up on the site and a summary of the evening will follow shortly.

There are also photos to take a peep at, the quality of which we apologise for as we found ourselves chairing the debate unexpectedly and as a result we were not able to take photos whilst the event was happening! (But we tried to do our best with camera phones)…..

You may note people smiling or even laughing in some of the photos. Strange, but true.

If you’d like to see more about the debate, you can access its home page, here, too.
