But also, it is due to the authors' confidence in the ability of social pedagogy to transform society through its work with children and young people - a trust and a hope shared by all those who have chosen to become involved in this field, from th3e academic sphere or from the professional sphere. -- European Journal of Social Work

This book will prove invaluable to those wanting to explore the thinking and practice of social pedagogy. The contributions are not only insightful and inspirational but also ambitious and aspirational, challenging the reader to participate in the evolving discourse on social pedagogy.
