INTRODUCTION TO THE SPECIAL CONFERENCE ISSUE

Abstract


This is the first special conference issue to be published by the International Journal of Child, Youth and Family Studies. It brings together keynote talks, a roundtable conversation, peer-reviewed conference papers as well as a book review. Most of the contributions included here were featured at the Child and Youth Care in Action III Conference, Leading Conversations in Research, Practice and Policy, which took place in Victoria, British Columbia, April 28 to 30, 2011. As the co-chairs of this conference, it gives us great pleasure to introduce this special conference edition of the IJCYFS.
