This chapter aims to do two things: first to outline the main theoretical approaches which underpin current discourses of management in youth work, providing the language through which we attempt to understand and explain management practices; and second to take a step back from these explanations to ask more fundamental questions about the position and role which management has achieved in recent times, and what effects this has had on current practices of youth work.
