However, a lack of clarity remains about what the idea really means and how it can help children.This book brings together contributions from international experts in order to define child well-being and to further understand how it can improve childrens lives.

Issues covered include how the idea is being used in government policy and practice in the UK and USA, how children can contribute to the understanding of child well-being, recent advances in the exploration of indicators and measures of well-being, and the importance of context in making comparisons. A concluding chapter explores whether child well-being is a useful concept in understanding childrens lives, whether it positively contributes to policy and practice, and the value of international comparisons.This edited collection is essential reading for all those involved in understanding childrens lives and who have responsibility for improving them, including practitioners, policymakers, students and academics.
