Joanne Faulkner: The Enemies of Innocence

Joanne Faulkner is the author of The Importance of Being Innocent, and an academic whose work examines the significance of innocence and childhood for contemporary understandings of political community.

In this Lunchbox/Soapbox presentation, Faulkner argues that the assumptions underpinning our obsessions with childhood purity are deeply fallacious - and address the needs of adults rather than the wellbeing of the young.
