Integrating Diversity is the result of the 2007 Interdisciplinary Conference held at Dartington Hall in the UK. The conference assembled a uniquely qualified group of contributors, drawn from the many professions involved in the work of the UK family justice system. This book brings together their papers and provides a detailed examination of the latest theory and practice in respect of: diversity and its impact on the family justice system --- human trafficking and asylum seekers --- the changing face of families --- lesbian and gay parenting --- meeting the needs of mixed heritage children --- trans-generational and cultural clashes --- parental disabilities and their impact on children --- child protection, family placement, and culture. This book is essential reading for all those involved with diversity issues arising in the UK family law field.
