Introduction: Social Work & Society – A Glossary for Theory and Practice
Social Work & Society (SW&S) is an Online-Only Journal on Social Work and Social Policy, which was founded in 2003. SW&S is based on an international, non-governmental network of Social Work and Social Policy Researchers and Teachers. SW&S opens up an independent platform for critical analyses, political discourses and informations on current developments in Social Work and Social Policy. SW&S is also of the International Open Access Initiative and therefore all papers and informations are free available for all SW&S-users.
To widen the possibilities for the users, SW&S starts in 2006 a SW&S-Glossary on Social Work and Social Policy (Issue 6).
Key Words, which are theoretically, practically and politically highly relevant in the current international debates on Social Work & Social Policy are introduced, classified and explained in there main contexts. In addition to that, the future perspectives of the connected debates and developments are drafted.
The SW&S Glossary will therefore allow researchers, teachers, students and activists in Social Work and Social Policy to get a systematic and accessible outline on main current debates.
Each Keyword will be presented in the same structure:
Each Keyword comprises not more than 1000 words. This and the fact that there will only little citation and not more than five sources of literature shall allow a very accessible usabilty.
Colleagues from all over the world are heartily invited to submit proposals for new Keywords to the SW&S-Glossary:
