Growing numbers of governments, professionals and international NGOs want to know about the context and conditions in which children live in alternative care across the Middle East and Asia Region. This Volume makes an important contribution by filling in knowledge gaps with 26 very accessible chapters that identify policies and practices operating in countries little known to readers of English.

This volume is the first of its kind in which contributors from across the Middle East and Asia Region discuss how residential child and youth care is provided in their localities. Practitioners, managers, scholars, policymakers and educators interested in international social work and residential child and youth care will find this volume an essential resource. Highly suitable for instructional purposes, every chapter of this eminently readable book includes insightful questions that foster reflection and deeper learning.
