Regional perspectives

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

It presents regional perspectives from around the world. Although there is a substantial consensus that social work is a global profession, it is mostly rooted in the local. Local unique features of social work education and practice make it challenging and complex to understand the profession at a global level as a universal and all-encompassing entity- which it is not.
