Child Protection Reform across the United Kingdom
In recent years, there have been significant policy shifts in relation to safeguarding children/child protection in the UK, with each region of the UK engaged in its own program of reform. Devolution has added a new dynamic to these developments. This book outlines recent developments in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Channel Islands. The book concludes with a chapter in which the editors compare and contrast the various reform programs across the UK, and it considers the extent to which child protection policy is converging or diverging. Intended as a resource for academics, policy makers, and those who are training to work with children, young people, and their families, the book provides an invaluable oversight to the origins of the UK's child protection policies.
