Social work in Europe is in motion. Both empirical and analytical approaches to research describe the status quo, while also outlining perspectives: Community work is increasingly supplementing social services, the civil society in its sensitive relationship to state and economy is acting as a multiple carrier of social performance, and the professionalisation of social work is witnessing a dramatic expansion. Inputs from various European countries show a diversity of strategies.
