ABOUT THIS BOOK
In recent years a number of child protection scandals have surfaced in which children—often from poor and marginalized communities—suffer violence, abuse, and social harm. In Children and Families, the contributors look at the impact of marketization on social work services in both Ireland and England in the context of such scandals. They argue that marketization has had a negative impact on social work policies and practices, reducing the quality and availability of services for vulnerable children and young people. Paul Michael Garrett is then joined by leading researchers from across the globe to examine evidence from a range of policy regimes that highlight marketization’s negative effects.
