This volume contends that British social work education has not fully acknowledged the evolution of structural and institutionalized racism in the United Kingdom and continental Europe. Tracing the ways in which racism toward Britain’s ethnic minority groups has changed, the contributors—many of them key practitioners in the field—argue that social work training should fully integrate anti-racist practices that reflect contemporary realities. In doing so, they assert the importance of social work in addressing racism toward groups including Eastern European migrants, Roma people, and asylum seekers.
Iain Ferguson, University of the West of Scotland
“The growth of Islamaphobia over the past decade alongside the rise of anti-Roma racism and increasing attacks on the idea of multiculturalism make it vital that we revisit and reassess the role of anti-racist social work in the twenty-first century. This book makes an invaluable contribution to that reassessment.”
