9781472412355: Human Rights and Social Equality: Challenges for Social Work: Social Work-Social Development Volume I

The mission of the social work profession and the development of social policy are rooted in a set of core values and are the foundation of social work’s unique purpose and perspective. Human rights offer a normative base for social work and for the formation of inclusive social policies. This informative and incisively written edited collection brings together experts from around the world to explore the tension between a normative and a political base of social work and social development and, therefore, to address the question: How can social work and social policies contribute in the endeavor to respect, protect and fulfill human rights? This volume will show that there is no straightforward answer to this question owing to the clash between different sociocultural and local conditions and demands for universal human rights.

About the Author:

Sven Hessle is Professor of Social Work at Stockholm University in Sweden and editor in chief of The International Journal of Social Welfare.

Review:

'These three volumes [see also Environmental Change and Sustainable Social Development and Global Social Transformation and Social Action: The Role of Social Workers] have the intention of covering the 'most important social aspects of social work and development in the world today', a writes Sven Hessle, Professor of Social Work at Stockholm University, in the introduction to the volumes. ... The many contributions of three volumes, albeit very diverse in form as well as in substance, provide food for thought about the global agenda.' --European Journal of Social Work
