Social Welfare for a Global Era : International Perspectives on Policy and Practice (Paperback) (James
About this item
Social Welfare for a Global Era is a new textbook on the topic of international social welfare written by internationally renowned author and scholar James Midgley. Faculty at many schools of social work recognize that enhanced international curriculum content is urgently needed because of the way globalization is affecting domestic realities, and blurring the distinction between the international and domestic spheres. In his book, Dr. Midgley offers a new conceptual framework for analyzing social work policy in the new global era. A series of chapters then present major institutional arrangements for promoting social welfare around the world. A final group of chapters focus on international collaboration in social welfare and the way social policy making is becoming increasingly internationalized through the efforts of multilateral organizations as well as the willingness of national governments to collaborate on international initiatives.
