On 3 June 2021, Children of Prisoners Europe (COPE) organized a webinar entitled “Mitigating Uncertainty for Children: from Pre-Trial Procedures to the COVID-19 Pandemic”. The webinar tackled the critical issue of uncertainty for children who have a parent in prison and the impact this uncertainty can have on their well-being. Strategies to better support children, their incarcerated parents, and their caregivers were explored.

We heard from:

  • Dr Shona Minson, Centre of Criminology, University of Oxford,
  • Prof Peter Scharff-Smith, Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law, University of Oslo,
  • Prof Ann Adalist-Estrin, Director of the National Resource Centre on Children and Families of the Incarcerated (USA)
