Professor Andy Bilson

Andy’s current research focuses on the overemphasis and exaggeration of risk in the child protection system and the increasing separation of children from parents through adoption and care.
I am working with Professor David Tobis to promote parental advocacy and activism in child protection reform and in late 2018 we brought together parents and their allies from countries across the UK, Australia and the US to develop the International Parent Advocacy Network.
