YOUTH & POLICY 112 hits the streets with a fascinating mix of pieces

Our friends at Youth & Policy are having a bit of a hiccup with their site, so it’s our pleasure to post in the interim a pdf of the latest issue here.

Youth & Policy 112 April 2014

Youth and Policy 112 contains a fascinating mix, including a lively disagreement between Simon Hallsworth and John Pitts on ‘gang denial’. At this moment I’ve still much to read, including the welcome articles from Scandinavia, but can recommend – not just because they are supporters of IDYW! – Jon Ord’s critique of today’s imposition of simplistic measures of accountability upon youth work, together with Janet Batsleer’s passionate espousal of the cooperative rather than the military ethos favoured by such as Gove and Bernard Davies’s warning about the loss of independence being suffered by the voluntary sector. Looking forward to reading the rest in due course.
