The present social policy and social work are facing with and challenging
the process of rapid change in all aspects of social life: economic,
cultural and political. The globalising capitalistic economy is considered
to be the main cause of this process and it is made responsible for
reduction of the public sphere, for the demise of the welfare state, for
growing poverty and social inequalities, for damage of the local
communities and families, for degradation of the environment. There is no
doubt social policy and social work has to rise to these challenges.
This volume contains some interesting contributions to this question
provided by international experts.
