Global and transnational social work, 15 hp
HT 2019, Halvfart, Norrköping
The course focus on three aspects: To live transnational lives; Globalisation of social problems and solutions of social problems; and Social work without borders. Both individual and structural perspectives will be applied through different examples. In the course different methods and ways of organizing social work in global contexts are examined. Social work and welfare work on a societal level are highlighted together with various roles of the social workers. Special emphasis will be given to discussion of ethical dilemmas, for example, contexts where authorities/social workers may be challenged in their national professional identity and capacity.
