J.K. Rowling in conversation with Eddie Redmayne at Carnegie Hall

J.K. Rowling and Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne discuss the institutionalisation of children across the world, what drives it, the harm that it causes to children, and what can be done to support different systems of care. 

Watch their discussion from Carnegie Hall, at the advance screening of the Warner Bros. feature film ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.

"What's happening across the developed world is, disaster hits and families are immediately pulled apart. We'll take those children from you - now imagine that, in the wake of a disaster, that people come to you and say that child will get fed - only if you give me that child."
