This article seeks to critically reflect on the experience and challenges of international social work research within a 10-country consortium of social work researchers examining the impact of neoliberalism on civil society and social work, under the auspices of a European Union, Framework 7, Marie Curie Action bid. The study enabled us to debate and examine the impact of neoliberalism on social work, to develop theory and perspectives, and to promote further debate on social work's responses. We aim to critically explore the nature and growth of social work research collaboration, while reconnoitring the contextual difficulties for international social work research, along with the research trials, to enable collaborative research to be reflective, concerted and facilitative.

More about this publication?
  • An International Journal

    Critical and Radical Social Work is an exciting new journal that will promote debate and scholarship around a range of engaged social work themes. The journal publishes papers which seek to analyse and respond to issues, such as the impact of global neo-liberalism on social welfare; austerity and social work; social work and social movements; social work, inequality and oppression, and understanding and responding to global social problems (such as war, disasters and climate change).

    It welcomes contributions that consider and question themes relating to the definition of social work and social work professionalism, that look at ways in which organic and 'indigenous' practice can expand concepts of the social work project and that consider alternative and radical histories of social work activity. As a truly international journal it actively encourages contributions from academics, scholars and practitioners from across the global village.
