Social work beyond borders

Akhtar, Farrukh and Livingstone, Wulf (2016) Social work beyond borders. Professional Social Work, Oct, pp. 21-22. ISSN (print) 1352-3112


Social workers are used to working in rapidly changing economic, legal and social contexts. However, the accumulated result of the devolutionary changes in the UK since 1999, could threaten UK social workers’ position as a unified profession, and their ability to work across national and international boundaries. The unfolding positions in social work within the areas of education, practice and policy represent real challenges to the generic and universal nature of its professional identity. While there is still time for collective action, will the profession, founded on its commitment to respect, human dignity and social justice, be able defend itself against such tides of parochialism?
