||a. Care work with looked-after children. b. A comparative and international perspective on education for work with children, drawing on a series of cross-national studies of social pedagogy and looked-after children in Europe. c. This international research explains the theoretical concepts that underpin the pedagogic approach, and examines practice and staffing issues through the example of work in residential care. d. e. Drawing on two studies, the chapter synthesises multiple perspectives on social pedagogy as an approach to care work. The first study entailed in-depth interviews with policy makers, students and teachers of pedagogy, and residential care managers and workers in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. The second was a mixed quantitative and qualitative comparison of England, Denmark and Germany, drawing on interviews with residential care workers, managers, and young people. f. Book proposal and book were peer reviewed by publishers. g. Lead author.
