Vulnerable Children and Youth Studies is an essential peer-reviewed journal analyzing vulnerability in childhood from a scholarly and experiential perspective so that learning and good practice can be discussed and disseminated with the ultimate goal of improving the lives of children. The focus includes psychological, sociological, health, gender, cultural, economic, and educational aspects of children and adolescents in developed and developing countries.
This international publication provides a much-needed interdisciplinary focus on vulnerable children and youth at risk, specifically in relation to health and welfare issues, such as mental health, illness (including HIV/AIDS), disability, abuse, neglect, institutionalization, poverty, orphanhood, exploitation, war, famine, violence and disaster. Gathering scholarly work from a multisectoral field, the journal offers critique, analysis and insight with regard to vulnerable children and youth in a range of settings, and aims to be widely consulted for cutting-edge research as well as effective policy and intervention.
