Human Rights and Social Equality: Challenges for Social Work

Social Work-Social Development Volume I

Edited by Sven Hessle, Stockholm University, Sweden

This informative and incisively written edited collection brings together experts from around the world to explore the tension between a normative and a political base of social work and social development and, therefore, to address the question: How can social work and social policies contribute in the endeavor to respect, protect and fulfill human rights? This volume will show that there is no straightforward answer to this question owing to the clash between  different sociocultural and local conditions and demands for universal human rights.

Global Social Transformation and Social Action: The Role of Social Workers

Social Work-Social Development Volume III

Edited by Sven Hessle, Stockholm University, Sweden

How does climate change affect social work and social development? What actions are needed to integrate the three pillars of economic development, environmental development and social protection?

With global warming and the increase in natural disasters due to the emission of greenhouse gases, an alternative approach to the natural environment is vital. The main focus of this volume is to emphasize the person-in-environment concept and to find measures for its implementation. For social work the environment has traditionally been viewed as a world of human relationships as opposed to the interaction between man and environment. 

This informative and incisively written edited collection brings together experts from around the world to analyze the person-in-environment concept and to find measures for its implementation.  Through the presentation of theoretical and practical platforms for environmental social work or green social work, we hope to bring about a new paradigmatic shift in our attitude to the concept of person-in- environment.
