Social work and community-based social economies: reflections on the task of socio-political development

Xe Rencontres du RIUESS - Luxembourg - 2 au 4 juin 2010

Résumé :

In view of the new forms of plunder and expropriation in societies, of the infringements of social, ecological and economic human rights, and the destruction of the natural bases of life, new, integrated approaches are required in social policy and social work, approaches that encourage local, demand-driven economies in the context of social action.

And the process of creating options for independent development needs to be supported through the instruments of social policy.
