This article discusses how international social work may be taught in the globalising Asian context. Towards this end, it analyses the meaning of international social work, presents a broad curriculum framework and a general guideline for curricula, and critically discusses some opportunities and challenges for teaching and practising international social work in the region. Drawing on this analysis the article argues that the region offers a fertile ground for practising international social work, but such practice needs to be squarely focused on least developed countries and least developed pockets within the relatively developing/developed countries in the region.
