Social Work and Social Justice: Theoretical Tensions
|Unit(s): 3.0||Level(s): Graduate||Term(s): Fall||Offered?: Yes|
This course addresses the fundamental tension in social work’s location within social programs and state practices that have the potential both to redress and to deepen social inequalities. Theoretical and practical dimensions of this tension are explored in the contemporary context in which social programs in the public and voluntary sectors are the focus of neo-liberal restructuring and of the struggles and claims of marginalized populations.
