9781847428455: Critical Geographies of Childhood and Youth: Contemporary Policy and Practice

This comprehensive book shows how geographical concepts—such as place, scale, mobility, and boundary making—can be put to use by social scientists and practitioners focused on young people. Drawn from cases in Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom, the essays collected here demonstrate that local and national concerns remain central to many youth programs, while also highlighting the increasingly globalized nature of youth policy. Informed by cutting-edge theoretical approaches in human geography, sociology, anthropology, and youth work, Critical Geographies of Childhood and Youth will aid anyone working in those fields.

About the Author:

Peter Kraftl is a senior lecturer in human geography at the University of Leicester. John Horton and Faith Tucker are both senior lecturers at the Centre for Children and Youth at the University of Northampton.

Review:

"How a nation treats its youth determines how those young people will treat their nation. This skilfully edited text critically and theoretically interrogates the complex spatialities of youth and education policies; invaluable reading for those working with, and caring for, children and young people."

(Tracey Skelton, National University of Singapore 2011-12-01)

“An outstanding critical analysis of youth policy that puts geography centre-stage. Drawing on diverse case studies, the book interweaves theory and practice—listening to and informing practitioner, academic and young people's perspectives.” (Rachel Pain, University of Durham 2012-01-17)

Critical Geographies of Childhood and Youth provides a succinct and diverse analysis of the role of space and place in the geographies of children and youth (e.g. education, work, transportation system). The authors build a strong case that children and youth are the social capital of the present and future and that policy needs to be ‘less interested in children as children and more as human beings.’” (Lisa K. Tabor Journal of Cultural Geography)

“This edited collection is a welcome addition to literature within children’s geographies due to its unique focus on policy and professional practice in relation to children and young people. Although the sub-discipline is now well established within contemporary human geography—indeed the journal Children’s Geographies is fast approaching its tenth anniversary—there has still been relatively little critical policy analysis of youth programmes, education or other arenas of young people’s lives by geographers. The central contribution of this collection of essays, therefore, is a commitment to theoretically informed critical policy discourse analysis and an explicit aim to highlight the role of geographical concepts (place, scale, mobility and network) in formulations of youth policy and how these matter to young people’s everyday lives.” (Sarah Milles Social and Cultural Geography)

“Critical reading for a robust understanding of the lives of children and young people.”  (Journal of Social Policy)
