Abstract:

Research into foster care is less developed in Germany than in the UK or US and there are few national practice standards. In 2006, a research centre was established at the University of Siegen to improve the situation. Klaus Wolf describes the work undertaken so far and discusses the aims and philosophy underpinning the programme. He explains how research relevant to practice is combined with studies that have theoretical value in their own right, and how a combination of these informs current debates about foster care in Germany and elsewhere.
