Social Work and Minorities: European Perspectives

Synopsis

Migration and multiculturality are not new phenomenon to Europe but recent periods of unprecedented human movement have established new and evolving diasporic configurations. Social Work and Minorities critically examines key concepts such as assimilation, multi-culturalism, racism, marginalization and social exclusion. It will be an essential resource for social work practitioners and educators working with migrant communities throughout Europe.

Excerpt

This book has grown out of many years’ collaboration and conversation between the editors, and between us and our contributors. Two of the editors (Soydan and Williams) first met within the frame of an erasmus programme, designed to bring together social work teachers across Europe. Both have a long background in schools of social work, in Wales and Sweden, and had long felt the need for a textbook of this kind to advance the training of students and practitioners of social work. Previous European textbooks in this field were either totally country-specific or written in another era. the third editor (Johnson) brought to the team a long experience of research into questions of ‘ethnic relations’ and the delivery of welfare-related services in societies of diversity. We hope that this work will meet all of our professional needs for an up-to-date text which will contribute to the requirements of a curriculum designed to equip social work students for practice in environments of multicultural diversity.
