International Labour Mobility in Social Work


While there is evidence of individual, ad hoc, international movement of social workers at the education or employment stage over many years, there are growing indications that there are now systematic efforts to recruit staff from abroad to make up for a shortfall in nationally trained social workers in a number of ‘western’ countries. This is evident in the UK and this monograph draws on papers presented at a symposium in England which aimed to explore the experience of this phenomenon from the perspective of different stakeholders.
