Original Title:
Youth Policy in the Nineteen Nineties : The Way Forward
Despite its importance, youth policy is often an ignored area of Government planning, with legislation and policy initiatives seeming to lack any guiding theme or relevance to the needs of young people. In Youth Policy in the 1990s, John C. Coleman and Chris Warren-Adamson have brought together prominent experts in key areas of youth policy. They provide a critical review of the major issues which implicitly or explicitly affect the world of adolescents and examine to what extent they paint a picture of existing youth policy. The aim is to provide a baseline for a policy on youth in the 1990s. The book recommends the introduction of a Minister for Young People and the use of youth impact statements at national and local level. It seeks also to provide information and argument for those seeking to plan policy for young people from a corporate or inter-agency perspective. The contributors are all recognized experts in their fields. They tackle their topic first by examining the historical perspective, with a special concentration on the past decade. Each has paid regard to particular themes - ethnicity, class and gender, and where possible has brought in material from other countries. This book should be of interest to professionals of psychology, social policy, education, social work and youth work.
