Moves to assist or protect the vulnerable now play a crucial role in welfare and criminal justice processes. This distinctive book draws on in-depth research with marginalised young people and the professionals who support them to explore the implications of a `vulnerability zeitgeist', asking how far the rise of vulnerability serves the interests of those who are most disadvantaged.
