Regular readers may have noticed the lack of activity here in recent weeks. This is because Policy Press at the University of Bristol have commissioned me to write a book about play policy.
The book will make particular reference to the British experience of the last few years but also offer pointers for any country wanting to take Article 31 of the UNCRC seriously. It will explore in detail the implications of last year’s General Comment about the child’s right to play, and what this means for play policy and its advocates.
We are aiming for a May 2015 publication and more information will appear here in due course.
In the meantime, I’ll be focusing my efforts on the manuscript and expect to post less material here, less often.
However, if you would like to receive information about the book when it’s ready, a good way would be to follow this site (see link to the right), which will be reinvigorated once my draft is with the publishers, sometime in Autumn 2014.
