Editor's note: The chair's introduction has been removed.

Speaker(s): Professor Adam Swift

Recorded on 13 November 2014 at Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building

The family is hotly contested ideological terrain. Some defend the traditional two-parent heterosexual family while others welcome its demise. Opinions vary about how much control parents should have over their children’s upbringing. Adam Swift will discuss the ethics of parent-child relationships, telling us why the family is valuable, who has the right to parent, and what rights parents should -- and should not -- have over their children.

Adam Swift is Professor of Political Theory at the University of Warwick.
