Dr. Tania de St Croix’s research is grounded in an appreciation and celebration of youth work and a critical understanding of the evaluation landscape. She was a youth worker for over 20 years and is a founding member of In Defence of Youth Work, a network of critical and radical youth workers in the UK, and the editor of the open-access journal, Youth & Policy.

She is currently working with Louise Doherty to research how young people and youth workers experience evaluation and outcomes frameworks. Her book, Grassroots Youth Work: Policy, Passion and Resistance in Practice, draws on a three-year qualitative research project investigating how youth workers experience a working context dominated by managerialism and marketization in times of austerity.
