European Social Work – A Compendium

Edited by Fabian Kessl, Walter Lorenz, Hans-Uwe Otto, and Sue White

Verlag Barbara Budrich

The publication takes account of the fundamental developments transforming social work in Europe at the beginning of the 21st century. A European standard of social work has already emerged, but models for future European social work are absent. Therefore the compendium gives an overview of the current transformation process for the first time, discusses the visible and invisible changes and maps out where social work is positioned in the emerging post-welfare states.
