Overview

"Children, Youth and Development focuses on the ways in which changes in development theory and practice have impacted on young people's lives and considers the influence of the differing geographical and social contexts in which young people live. This text addresses issues that preoccupy children and youth, or dominate policies towards them, with topics as diverse as health, education, child labour, youth unemployment, street children and child soldiers. Finally, the book examines how children and youth, as bearers of rights and with the enthusiasm and energy to bring about change, can be enabled to participate in 'development'." This textbook contains numerous student-friendly features, including boxed case studies from across the Third World, summaries of key ideas, discussion questions and annotated guides to further resources on each chapter's main topics, as well as diagrams, tables, maps and photographs.
