Social Work in a Glocalised World, Hardback Book

Description

This engaging and timely volume contributes new knowledge to the rapidly emerging field of globalisation and social work.

The volume brings together cutting-edge interdisciplinary scholarship from countries such as Australia, Finland, Japan, South Africa, the Philippines and Sweden.

It proposes `glocalisation' as a useful concept for re-framing conditions, methodologies and practices for social work in a world perspective.

Part I of the volume, 'The Glocalisation of Social Issues', deals with major environmental, social and cultural issues - migration and human rights, environmental problems and gendered violence.

Part II, 'Methodological Re-Shaping and Spatial Transgression in Glocalised Social Work', develops an epistemology of situated knowledge and methodologies inspired by art, creative writing and cultural geography, focusing on physical, material and emotional spatial dimensions of relevance to social work.

Part III, 'Responses from Social Work as a Glocalised Profession', examines how social work has responded to specific social problems, crises and vulnerabilities in a glocalised world.
