Abstract

Concerns with protecting children are often interlinked with strategies and policies that problematise children and families, with existing strategies in the United Kingdom stressing the links between drug use, family problems and criminal justice. We do not have to look much further than the use of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) with children and young peoples’ in the United Kingdom, to witness the dangers in misidentification and misconflation of vulnerability and risk. Simon Flacks’ Law, Drugs and The Politics of Childhood – From Protection to Punishment offers a fascinating insight into the origins of the associations between childhood and drugs.
