The protection of children from maltreatment is a worldwide challenge. Social context plays a significant role in both the definition and society?s responses to child maltreatment. The core concept of child maltreatment is socially constructed with variations in its meaning over time and between cultures, creating significant challenges and resulting in a tension between respecting different cultures yet having one law or standard applicable for all children.

This Major Work serves a significant function in pulling together literature demonstrating the different lessons that have been learned, pulling out common elements where possible, and helping to clarify the nature of the differences.

"This is a long-awaited publication on child maltreatment, including work by leading researchers in the field from various parts of the world, which thoroughly covers the causal risks, prevention and the possible responses to the issue."

This three-volume set by two leaders in the field provides a comprehensive grounding in contemporary knowledge and practice for child protection work.  The volume brings together commentary on the latest evidence and debates about the nature of child maltreatment and how best to achieve children's safety and well-being. The set will be an invaluable resource for academics, policy makers, practitioners and students in the field of child protection.

Övrig information

Eileen Munro is Professor of Social Policy at the London School of Economics, London, UK. With a background in both philosophy and social work, her work has focused on the reasoning skills needed to provide an effective child protection service. The work was taken up by many child protection services in several countries but, in working with management and practitioners to improve risk assessment and decision making, she realised that the individual decision maker is strongly influenced by organizational and social factors that also need to be understood in order to reduce error. A powerful framework for doing this is provided by the systems approach to investigating error that was developed in aviation and has been adapted to medicine in the US and UK. Professor Munro then worked with the Social Care Institute for Excellence in the UK to adapt this approach to use in child protection services and it is now being adopted widely in England. At the request of the Secretary of State for Education, she undertook a review of child protection in England and published the final report in April 2011, followed by a progress report in May 2012.

Her extensive consultancy work with child protection services in higher-income countries as well as her academic work makes her well qualified to pull together an overview of the issues in child protection.
