Reflecting the National Occupation Standards for Youth Work, this book explores the process and concept of globalisation and global inequalities, as well as the notion of global citizenship. It defines global youth work and engages the reader in practical strategies to locate the sometimes abstract concept of globalisation in young people s everyday experiences. This book is aimed at students on Joint Negotiating Committee or equivalent qualifying courses and youth work practitioners everywhere.
