Abstract

The Scottish Parliament’s ‘Children and Young People’ Act has extended statutory responsibilities for the welfare of children to include their wellbeing. This article focuses on the Named Person service, arguing that an attenuated understanding of surveillance by politicians and other stakeholders has contributed to a failure to adequately consider the surveillance dimensions of this new universal provision.
