For more than 50 years, John Triseliotis made important contributions to our understandings of children separated from their parents through his research, writing and teaching. His early career in social work developed in Cyprus and London, then he gained an academic post at the University of Edinburgh in the 1960s. He became Professor of Social Work and Director of Social Work Education there. Most of his research was carried out in Scotland but he also engaged in important studies that covered England too, and wrote about social welfare and children’s issues in Cyprus and Greece.
