The history of youth work in Europe Volume 5 Autonomy through dependency

Author: Siurala, Lasse
Publisher: Council of Europe

Genre: Education

The “History of youth work in Europe” series aims to achieve better understanding of current challenges in youth work and youth policy. Volume 5 addresses questions like: How have government policies and administrative practices over the past few decades affected youth work? What kind of strategies has youth work developed to react to them and to create a positive space for work with young people? Can educational approaches of youth work, like social pedagogy, help mediate between young people in their ever-changing lives and society? Co-operation between youth policy, youth research and youth work has been called “the Magic Triangle” – but is the magic still there? This publication discusses these and other topics from a variety of perspectives. The authors come not only from Europe, but also from the USA, Australia and South Africa, providing a refreshing, comparative reflection on youth work issues and opportunities, which is revealed to be global in nature. They also have diverse and varied backgrounds in youth research, youth work, youth policy making and youth worker training. This comparative historical perspective puts some of the pieces of the “youth work puzzle” together, while many are left unconnected. It also becomes apparent that there is an element of randomness in the historical development of youth work. Many structures, policies, approaches and methods are not “historically necessary”. Rather, many things could have come out differently. This volume on the history of youth work provides many readings: it provides a rich collection of national youth histories to complement and build upon the four earlier volumes, and histories and analyses of youth work for readers to compare with their own experience, sharpen their critical view and inspire their thinking.

Sport and International Politics

Author: Pierre Arnaud
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135816292
Release Date: 2013-07-04
Genre: Sports & Recreation

Sociology and history of sport is a fast rising subject. There is a growing interest in issues associated with globalization and sport culture across European and North American boundaries. This book fills an important gap. At the forefront of new areas of research in sport studies, it deals with a significant historical period systematically and, above all, internationally. Brought together in a single volume, this work examines the shaping of sport both by the fascist and communist institutions of Europe during the interwar period. It shows how sport was used as an instrument of propaganda and psychological pressure by major political and sporting nations as well as international movements such as the Catholic Church and the International Worker Sport Movement. This volume will be a key reference for researchers and students in sports history, sports sociology, politics and European studies.

Geschichte S dosteuropas

Author: Ulf Brunnbauer
Publisher: Reclam Verlag
ISBN: 9783159613062
Release Date: 2018-02-09
Genre: History

Wohl keine europäische Region ist so in sich unterschiedlich wie Südosteuropa, das erst zu Byzanz, dann zum Osmanischen Reich, zur österreichisch-ungarischen Monarchie und schließlich in großen Teilen zum Einflussbereich der Sowjetunion gehörte. Das Zusammenleben von Muslimen und Christen verschiedener Konfessionen wie auch die schwierigen wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen führten dort immer wieder zu blutigen Konflikten; alle Länder haben bis heute mit Armut und Korruption zu kämpfen. Dieses Buch legt die Wurzeln vieler Probleme frei und gibt Einblicke in die Aktualität einer ganzen Region – von Albanien bis Zypern.
