This chapter briefly reviews some key themes from the diverse chapters in the book. It places an emphasis upon critical studies of the doing of youth policies. It argues that youth policies literally take place – as exemplified by every chapter in this book – and that, therefore, a geographical approach should remain central to analysis of youth policies and professional practices. It ends with some suggestions and provocations for future research, calling for an opening-up of critical geographies of childhood and youth to more hopeful, public and non-Western discourse.

Keywords:   Hope/affirmative critique, Critiques of childhood studies, Public geographies, Children's geographies, Space and place
