C&S 25th Anniversary Issue
This commemorative ‘virtual’ issue celebrates 25 years of Children & Society by bringing together a selection of papers that we consider among the most significant and influential. The papers highlight some of the changes in the content of the journal, as well as many of the continuities. The changes reflect the shifting social context and policy environment, including social reforms that were shaped in part by work published in Children & Society. The continuities reflect the journal’s core goals: to offer high-quality scholarship on a wide range of childhood issues, with a strong focus on policies and services and an underlying commitment to promote the well-being of children and articulate their place in society.
