Youth & Policy – from welfare via Beirut and Dewey to activism and living alone.

As ever it’s a warm welcome to the latest Youth & Policy, which contains a promising mix of articles, including one from IDYW stalwarts Kalbir Shukra, Malcolm Ball and Katy Brown on ‘Young People shaping their worlds’ and Jon Ord on the continuing significance of John Dewey. In the new Thinking Space there’s a timely and challenging contribution from Tom Wylie on the issue of the Institute of Youth Work.  Much to munch and muse upon.
