Studying the Impact of Indicators of Child Well-Being on Policies and Programs
The volume is devoted to the use of childhood social indicators to improve the wellbeing (or, in Ben-Arieh’s terms, the “well-becoming”) of children. While it draws upon the output of an international meeting at Columbia University, it is part of a series of exchanges organized by a multinational group of which Asher Ben-Arieh is a leading figure. (See bibliography of Ben-Arieh and Goerge in this volume for earlier reports.) While the Ben-Arieh and Goerge paper has much of the flavor of an introduction, the Teitler and Ben-Arieh contribution, written after the discussion, could serve very well as a volume conclusion.
