'Paradigm shift': Children's bill to legislate for joint responsibility for children in divorces
The Hon. Matthew Cheung Kin-chung GBS, JP at CIF3
Thank you to all the speakers, moderators, student volunteers, CUHK staff, attendees and support who helped to make CIF3 a great event and helped us to make the front page of the South China Morning Post.
Thank you for your time, energy and supportive engagement with the issues.
For two days we heard from 48 speakers about issues ranging from the imminent release of the Children's Bill for Hong Kong, to the epidemiology of child abuse to the various ways to ensure that the child's voice can be heard.
We had participants from Hong Kong and overseas representing the Hong Kong government, judiciary, academia, the legal profession, mediators, children's groups, NGOs, clinicians, mental health professionals and educational counsellors.
Thank you to all who came and participated. We are grateful to all who contributed and we look forward to seeing you at CIF4.
