The Role of Emotion in Institutional Spaces of Russian Orphan Care: Policy and Practical Matters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The latter half of the 20th century saw the West largely pursuing policies of deinstitutionalisation in orphan care, with orphanages seen as spaces of extreme emotional deprivation capable of causing considerable harm to their inhabitants (IJzendoorn et al., 2008). Yet, large-scale institutionalisation of orphaned children continues to be the norm in many countries across the globe (Ainsworth and Thoburn, 2014).
