“How Does Foster Care Work?” is an international collection of empirical studies on the outcomes of children in foster care. Drawing on research and perspectives from leading international figures in children’s services across the developed world, the book provides an evidence base for program planning, policy and practice. This volume establishes a platform for comparison of international systems, trends and outcomes in foster care today. Each contributor provides a commentary on one other chapter to highlight the global significance of issues affecting children and young people in care.
