In breve

This volume presents the history, the developments of integration programmes and the treatment of immigrants and minorities in different European regions. It shows the approaches of social work and social workers that were developed through these processes. The articles can be read as regional studies that allow basic approximations of the different histories and situations, but also as case studies presenting elements that are similar in social work throughout Europe.
Social workers have to face multiple challenges. They have to analyse the concrete situation, face diversity, differences and commonalities, and learn to use international and European instruments for a rights-based social work with immigrants. The institutions of social work have to open themselves to intercultural approaches. The debate about the discourses in society on culture, structure and individuality has to be deepened, both in social work institutions and in social work education. The book is aimed at scholars, social work academics, students and practitioners, and contributes to the discourse of culture-sensitive social work.
