Safeguarding adults and legal literacy: approaches from UK devolved nations

Safeguarding adults and legal literacy: approaches from UK devolved nations

This e-book consists of four chapters developed from presentations given at an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded seminar on Safeguarding and the devolved UK nations, which was held at the University of Bedfordshire in the autumn of 2016. A final legal chapter in this issue has been provided by the Tim Spencer-Lane of the Law Commission and discusses the proposals developed during 2016-17 for reform of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards in England.

The 3-year seminar series, hosted by Keele University is entitled Safeguarding adults and legal literacy and consists of 3 seminars per year held in different locations (linked to the co-researchers on the series). As this e-book is from the first year of the series it is anticipated that there will be 2 further Special Issues covering papers from seminars in the remaining years that the series runs.
