--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Critical Perspectives on Safeguarding Children provides amulti–disciplinary analysis of current approaches to safeguardingchildren in the UK. It addresses the strengths, weaknesses andcomplexities inherent in the Government s objective ofpromoting opportunities for children through the Every ChildMatters (ECM) framework. This book identifies key tensions anddilemmas in areas of policy and practice, and a number ofsignificant questions are raised which, it is argued, need to beaddressed if the aspirations of the ECM agenda are to be fullyrealised.

A critical text that takes the readership beyond the howto of policy and practice, Critical Perspectives onSafeguarding Children encourages an engagement with Governmentstrategies and the ideas and discourses which frame them. Drawingcontributors from the disciplines of Criminology, Education,Geography, Health, Philosophy, Social Policy and Social Work, thisbook provides an up–to–date overview of policy and practice thatencourages students to think broadly, across traditional subjectboundaries with regard to the safeguarding agenda.
