What about the family?

Several past and present PEALS colleagues have contributed to the just-published collection 'What about the family? Practices of responsibility in care'.

Co-edited by former PEALS Executive Director Professor Janice McLaughlin, together with Professor Hilde Lindemann (Michigan State University) and Professor Marian Verkerk (Groningen University), the book presents some of the work of the international consortium Network on Ethics of Families.

Contributors from PEALS include current colleagues Professor Jackie Leach Scully, Dr Simon Woods and Dr Lorraine Crowley, together with former visitors Hilde Lindemann, Professor Ulrik Kihlbom (Uppsala), Professor Jamie Nelson (MSU) and Dr Jacqueline Chin (National University of Singapore).

Although funding for the Network has now come to an end there are several ongoing formal and informal collaborations among its members.
