Plenary 7 - Conference Action PointsConference Resolutions
The contributions of a programme of exceptional speakers, drawn from leading members of the medical, legal, academic and social work professions, have resulted in the thought-provoking content of the papers which make up this volume.
The work of both delegates and speakers in the invaluable small group discussion sessions which took place has been consolidated by the drafting committee to produce 14 resolutions under the title, ‘Neither Blind to nor Blinded by Culture’. These resolutions represent, in succinct form, the collective thinking of the members of the inter-disciplinary community who made up the conference.
It is to be hoped these resolutions will be well received by government and that they will inform and benefit future practice in family law.
