Written in the broad context of heterogeneity in Europe and
continuing fiscal pressures influencing welfare reforms, the
editor has brought together twelve chapters from established
as well as new academic writers from Germany, the Netherlands,
Spain, Denmark and Britain. These innovative chapters comprise
diverse insights that make an important contribution to our
understanding of these complex areas of modern human life.
This is the second volume in the SocNet conference
series drawing together chapter contributions from across Europe
from the annual thematic symposium that is the European
Erasmus International Social Work Week. In April 2013 the
theme of the conference held at Bournemouth University, UK
was diversity and marginalisation – a topic rich in critical
nuance within social work and related interdisciplinary fields.
