Social Work In Europe: Educating for Change


Social work is a diverse and contested activity in which national traditions and cultural factors affect its form and its adaptation to changing political and socio-economic conditions. However, the education and research which underpin this professional field are increasingly open to influences from outside local and national boundaries. Social Work in Europe takes a thematic approach to an analysis of such external influences – and the learning derived from comparative study – specifically as experienced in the European region.
