Globalisation will impact on all those engaged in the education process for health and social care, requiring us to move from a narrowly Eurocentric vision. The contributors to this book have experience of social work education in many different contexts around the world. Their examples of agreement and difference will assist practitioners, educators and students alike who seek to identify ways of developing their practice in an increasingly international context, in which we must be open to learning from a wide range of practice and educational models.
