Social Work with Youth in Conflict with Law
The symposium focuses on providing space to critically reflect on the extent to which theory and research have been employed by those in power to inform and legitimise policy and practice in the field of ‘youth justice’ or, more broadly, ‘children in conflict with the law’.
Particular attention will be paid to how ‘global’ knowledge can be mobilised to develop effective and humane responses to ‘children in trouble’ and how this can be developed and sustained in order to influence practice. Symposium participants will also pay attention to the all important consideration of ‘local’ transferability of practice models including the processes of interpretation and implementation.
