International Evidence for Improving Child Welfare, Child Protection and Children's Rights
This book takes an international perspective on child welfare, examining how frameworks can be adapted to address the rights and best interests of children. Synthesising the latest research, experts redefine the concept of a 'child in need' in a world where global movement is common and children are frequently involved in the law.
This short guide cuts through the confusing mass of legislation to provide a concise and jargon-free explanation of current community care practice and the law. It is an essential resource for busy practitioners at all levels as well as managers in both the statutory and voluntary sectors, and policy-makers in local authorities and the NHS.

Studies from Hollow Water, the Iona Community, and Plum Village
In this groundbreaking international comparative study on healing justice, the author examines a number of traditional communities. Sawatsky identifies the common patterns, themes, and imagination which these communities share. These commonalities among those that practice healing justice are then examined for their implications for wider society.
The book focuses on how many areas of law apply to vulnerable adults, bringing together an extensive body of case law to illustrate this. Also covered is how local authorities and the NHS may themselves be implicated in the harm suffered. For example, in terms of gross lapses in standards of care and basic dignity sometimes found in hospitals.
