`Combining global examples of cases with practical solutions, this book will be of interest to anyone involved in child advocacy, from judges to probation officers' - childRIGHT

`The greatest achievement of this book may be its inspiration to those also willing to "swim against the tide" as child advocates... The authors are open about the practicalities of their work and the tensions they have experienced... their personal accounts contain gripping narratives of real attempts to improve situations for children' - Adoption & Fostering

This collection of original articles by an international team of contributors addresses a wide range of issues affecting children and youth such as: child labour; international child custody abduction; juvenile delinquency; child abuse and neglect; and date violence among teenagers. The innovative approaches proposed by the contributors to deal with these concerns include: creating a child advocacy centre within a private firm; litigation strategies; and developing a handbook that explains courts processes to abused children.
