    Social work and countering violent extremism in Sweden and the UK2019Inngår i: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Social Work in Europe, is now being tasked with managing the ‘problems’ of terrorism, i.e supporting those affected by terrorist attacks, managing returnees affiliated with Terrorist groups in the Middle East, or, as will be discussed here, identifying those at risk from radicalisation and extremism. Both Britain and Sweden have Counter-Terrorism policies, but recent developments in both countries have made it a statutory requirement for social workers to work within such policies. This paper seeks to explore the policies in both countries, utilising a comparative approach to consider the similarities in not only policy and practice but also in the ethical consequences such policies pose for social workers across Europe. The exploration considers; the extent to which anti-radicalisation policies influence social work practices in Sweden and the UK and how they might undermine social work as a human rights profession. The results indicate that anti-radicalisation policies run the risk of reducing social work to become a ‘policing profession’ practising social control. This has substantial consequences for social work and its global ethics, which should be considered and struggled against by social workers committed to principles of social justice and human rights.

    Revitalizing social work education through global and critical awareness: Examples from three Scandinavian schools of social work2017Inngår i: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 20, nr 1, s. 76-87Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Increasing globalisation, reorganisation of the Scandinavian welfare regimes and the awareness of increasing global roots of local social problems necessitated change in the curriculum of social work in three Scandinavian schools of social work in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Recent global transformations, increasing global inequalities, increasing forced migration and the emergence of glocal social problems make the traditional education and methods of social work ineffective and in some cases harmful for people in need of social work intervention. This article examines the need to provide critical, global and multilevel perspectives in social work education in order to prepare social work students for the increasing social problems with global roots. The article, which is based on cross-national collaborations in social work education between three Scandinavian countries, addresses global and critical components in theoretical courses, professional training and field practice in the social work education of the countries in question. It is argued that social work education should move beyond the old division of classical and international/intercultural toward including global and critical perspectives in an integrative manner in all programs.

    A weakening welfare state and the changing professional identities of social workers in Sweden2018Inngår i: 8th European Conference for Social Work Research Book of Abstracts, Edinburgh, 2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Social workers have historically been an integral part of a well-developed welfare state in Sweden. However, the traditional ‘solidary role’ of social workers has rapidly altered due to the neoliberal changes, which has weakened the social support system. This has created ‘identity crisis’ for many social workers who still perceive themselves as promoters of ‘welfare of the people’. This study explores the neoliberal transformations and the changing professional identity of municipal social workers and their experiences of, and responses to, the neoliberal reorganisation of public social work in Sweden. The following questions have guided the study: How has the recent political, social and organisational transformations influenced the daily work of social workers? How such changes have influenced the relationship and trust between social workers and service users? How such neoliberal transformations have influenced social workers professional identity? How do social workers respond to neoliberal changes in and limitations to their professional activities? The contribution is based on interviews with 15 social workers working in different municipalities in Sweden, during 2016-17. The interviewed social workers were engaged in different areas of public municipal social work, such as in the areas of child and family welfare, homelessness, mental health problems and substance abuse and social work with asylum-seekers. The results have been analysed in the frame of critical social theory. The study shows that meanwhile some social workers are resisting the neoliberal managerialism, which influence their sense of pride in their professional identities by finding new creative and progressive ways of working with people in need, others are uncritically adjusting themselves to evolving forms of neoliberal managerialism. It is concluded that the new neoliberal political and organisational landscape of professional social work in Sweden and the retreat of the welfare state from its traditional duties and, thereby, the reduction of social workers possibilities to work directly with service users, make the struggle for revitalisation of rights-based welfare state and solidary social work more urgent than ever.

    Abstract [en]

    This article critically analyses empowerment projects in a local community in southern India and explores the shortcomings of development projects aimed at changing living conditions of marginalized people. It is argued that international social work should move beyond established empowerment theories and practices and include combating structural barriers in an emancipatory manner.

    Globalisation, Community Development and Empowerment2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In a time of growing demand for and debate on sustainable development, which also influences thefield of social work, development is often related to various empowerment-oriented and neoliberalinvestment related activities for the development of ‘non-developed’ countries. This risks ignoring thestructural mechanisms, which reproduce global inequalities and non-sustainability. This postercritically examines the dilemmas linked to a neoliberal and linear global development agenda forcombating poverty and global problems declared by international organs, such as the UN and the EU,which also influences the practices of social work.The following questions are guiding the study: ‘Which are the core arguments behind the recent UNand EU reports concerning sustainable development for empowering local communities? ‘How doindividuals and families from local communities evaluate the effects of such projects and programs fortheir life conditions? What is the role of social work in combating shortcomings of a lineardevelopment agenda and the development of new sustainable alternatives?The study is based on analysis of official UN and EU documents guiding sustainable developmentand interviews with individuals with experiences of development projects and programs in localcommunities in Southern India and in a few West African countries. The results of the study show thatthe discourse of ‘sustainable development’ in the recent UN report and EU documents are very muchguided by a neoliberal and West-centric understanding of global development and empowerment,which deteriorate the living conditions of people living in non-Western local communities. It is arguedthat social work should consider the dilemmas and problems engaged in the established discourse of‘sustainable development’ and find alternative programs beyond the West-centric developmentagenda. This requires further development of ‘the global agenda for social work’ in order to addressthe mechanisms behind the reproduction of inequalities in the name of development.

    Local Reactions to Global Problems: Undocumented Immigrants and Social Work2014Inngår i: British Journal of Social Work, ISSN 0045-3102, E-ISSN 1468-263X, Vol. 44, s. 35-52Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the tensions between the Global Statements of Ethical Principles of Social Work influenced by the Universal Declarations of Human Rights and related international conventions and the social work practices with undocumented immigrants in Sweden. The paper is based on a comprehensive study of working practices with undocumented immigrants in the framework of the Swedish social care system, where municipal social workers and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) actors have been interviewed. The material was complemented by participant observations. The empirical results show how globalisation, migration and social problems of undocumented immigrants increasingly challenge the national basis of social work and create tensions between national laws and practices guiding the Swedish welfare services and the Global Statements of Ethical Principles of Social Work. The lack of adequate working methods and legal frames makes it possible for social workers and NGO actors to make informal alliances with other actors for the improvement of undocumented immigrants’ living conditions. It is argued that the national basis of social work should be reformed in order to include global conditions of local social problems and realise itself as a human rights profession.

    Localised Globalities and Social Work: Contemporary Challenges2014Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent global and structural transformations, a West-centric development agenda and the triumph of neoliberal politics have led to destructive consequences for many local communities and individual life chances. The global dominance of the West-centric development agenda, with its roots in the colonial past, has created uneven developments and an unjust world in which Western countries continue to gain advantages and increase their prosperity. Although a minority elite in many non-Western countries share the same interests as Western countries and their global organs, the majority of people in these countries are suffering from increasing socioeconomic inequalities. As a result of the dogmatic belief in a singular and West-centric modernity and its practices, many problems are considered to be the result of non-Western countries’ inabilities to complete the project of modernity in accordance with Western blueprints. This has also influenced social work as a global and modern profession. Social problems are often individualised and the reasons behind many inequalities are increasingly related to non-Western people’s individual shortcomings and traditional cultural backgrounds. In Western and non-Western countries equally are the neoliberal structural and institutional transformations ignored and social problems of individuals and families defined as a matter of wrong and deviant actions and choices.

    The main objective of the dissertation, which is constituted of four articles and an overall introduction and summary, is to examine the consequences of recent neoliberal globalisation based on the belief in a single and West-centric modernity and development agenda and their consequences for social work facing increasing global inequalities. The following research questions have guided the work: ‘How can social work play an effective role in combating social problems and otherisation, marginalisation and increasing inequalities in a globalised world?’, ‘How does the global development agenda function within the local arenas of social work?’, ‘Are development projects improving people’s life chances in local communities in non-Western countries?’, ‘How informed and responsive are social workers towards the global context of local problems?’

    The work is based on a qualitative design using qualitative content analysis for analysing data collected through interviews, participant observations and official documents. The results show that irrespective of where and in which context social problems are appearing, since local problems often have global roots, a global perspective to local problems should be included in every practices of social work in order to develop new methods of practices in an increasingly globalised field of work. Destruction of local communities, forced migration from non-Western countries, and marginalisation of people with immigrant background in Western countries should not be considered only as local problems, but also as problems with their roots in global structural inequalities which reproduces global social problems with local consequences.

    It is argued that social work should consider the dilemmas and problems connected to the taken for granted West-centric theories, understandings and practices of social work in order to develop new methods of practices for combating social problems, marginalisation and increasing inequalities in a globalised world. Such a position includes practicing multilevel social work, social work in global alliances beyond the division of East and West, and mobilisation against neoliberalism and the retreat of the welfare state. This requires critical standpoints against the relationship between the global context of the neoliberal ideology and practices in a Western-dominated and postcolonial world and the daily practices of social work.

    Overfishing, social problems and ecosocial sustainability in Senegalese fishing communities2019Inngår i: Journal of Community Practice, ISSN 1070-5422, E-ISSN 1543-3706, Vol. 27, nr 3/4, s. 213-230Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores living conditions of people in Senegalese fishing communities in relation to environmental change and unregulated fishing by foreign boats, weakening local opportunities and increasing forced migration of youth, creating problems for the future development of local fishery communities. It employs a postcolonial perspective and analyzes data collected through interviews with individuals from Senegalese fishing communities, social workers and relevant documents. The results show local reactions based on alliances between social workers and local community members to overfishing and the need for national and global structural changes. It is argued that EU’s fishing agreements with Senegalese government is one of the reasons behind youths’ forced migration to EU countries and that the betterment of the living conditions of fishery communities in Senegal requires not only already emerging alliances between social workers and local community members, but also national and global structural changes to protect Africa’s fishing communities and local fisheries.

    Servants of a 'sinking Titanic' or actors of change?: contested identities of social workers in Sweden2019Inngår i: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 22, nr 2, s. 212-224Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Historically, social workers have been an integral part of a well-developed welfare state in Sweden. However, due to the neoliberal changes, which have seen the weakening of the support system for vulnerable groups and individuals, the traditional ‘solidary role’ of social workers has rapidly altered. This has created uncertainty and dilemmas for the identification of many social workers, who still perceive themselves as promoters of ‘welfare of the people’. This article dwells, therefore, on neoliberal transformations and the changing professional identity of practitioners. The study is based on a comprehensive empirical work of interviews with social workers. The results show a growing and widespread unease with new professional roles and functions of social workers as bureaucrats within a neoliberalised organisation of public social work. Some social workers still try to find creative and new ways of working in solidarity, while others, although critical, see adjustment to the new organisational frames as a way to continue their work. It is argued that social workers are not passive actors in the process of neoliberalisation of public social work in Sweden but could actively take different stances and choose their own identifications, in order to maintain the solidary role of social workers.

    Abstract [en]

    Globalisation, increasing inequalities and marginalisation create new challenges for social work as a global profession and research arena. The recent global socio-economic and structural transformations have reinforced otherisation of non-western peoples and the use of the old colonial discursive repertoire of ‘Us’and‘Them’. This paper argues that culturalisation of social problems creates obstacles for the development of new methods and practices in social work.

    The contested field of social work in a retreating welfare state: the case of Sweden2015Inngår i: Critical and radical social work An international journal, ISSN 2049-8608, E-ISSN 2049-8675, Vol. 3, nr 3, s. 357-374Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article critically examines the consequences of the neoliberal reorganisation of the welfare state for social work in Sweden in a time of increasing poverty, marginalisation and social problems. The retreat of the welfare state from its traditional obligations has resulted in the emergence of many voluntary and private actors in the Swedish ‘care market’, driving social work to authoritative action of social control and engagement in charitable activities. Based on a review of recent events indicating that municipal social work is in crisis, it is shown that critical voices are reacting against the increasing shortcomings of the welfare state, including municipal social work practices. It is argued that the pursuit of rights-based social work is urgent and that social work should be engaged in raising critical questions influencing public debate in order to counteract the increasing neoliberal dissolution of the Swedish welfare state and social work, which has led to increasing inequalities and injustices.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter is a writing against normalized and naked everyday racism and sexism in our society. Although it deals with recent structural transformations and their glocalized consequences, it focuses on micro-processes based on the intersection of class, gender and ethnicity/‘race’ for the reproduction of global inequalities. The chapter critically analyzes the medialized ‘love market’ and its otherization of ‘immigrant women’ as inferiorized to both white women and men equally.

    International field training in social work education: beyond colonial divides2018Inngår i: Social Work Education, ISSN 0261-5479, E-ISSN 1470-1227, Vol. 37, nr 7, s. 895-908Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the influence of and need for a critical and global-oriented social work education on students’ learning and developments in the context of international field training. The study uses mixed methods strategy of web survey, focus groups and document review of field reports. Participants in the study are social work students from social work programs in Norway and Sweden who have conducted their international field training in the Global South. The results of the study show that in order to obtain a critical and postcolonial understanding of global inequalities and the role of social work, students need to be truly prepared for international field training by critical and postcolonial knowledge, which will challenge many students’ West-centric perspectives and facilitate them by a self-reflective positioning throughout their field training. The imagination of traveling to and ‘learning about the others’ should be then replaced by a move beyond ‘us-and-them’ divides in line with the ethical principles and values of social work.

    Marginalization and social work in a changing society: Older refugees and social work2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent “refugee crisis” is due to global inequalities, wars and conflicts, political and social instabilities which have led to deterioration in the living conditions of many people in non-Western countries; resulting in displacement of millions of people on a global scale. A “substantial number” of people who flee to European countries are older refugees who loose their social networks in times of crises and large-scale emmigration. Given the lack of job opportunities for older people they become socioeconomically and culturally marginalised in the host countries. Older refugees and their living conditions have been overlooked in global social problems such as forced migration and rarely addressed by social work programs or professionals, although social workers play a key role in in supporting the rapidly ageing world. This presentation critically examines the hindrances and opportunities for the inclusion of older persons in the host society. The preliminary results of the study show the structural hindrances such as the pension system and the advanced labour market but also possibilities of receiving a relatively good health care and public economic support. It is argued that social work should actively be engaged in structural reforms to improve the living conditions of older refugees.

    Social Justice Beyond Neoliberal Welfare Nationalism: Challenges of increasing immigration to Sweden and Norway2017Inngår i: Critical and radical social work An international journal, ISSN 2049-8608, E-ISSN 2049-8675, Vol. 5, nr 3, s. 301-317Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article critically examines the socio-political responses of Sweden and Norway to the increasing of immigration and refugees in 2015/16. Based on a review of governmental and municipal authorities’ responses to the increasing immigration to the two countries, the results show that the increasing of immigration and refugees in a time of neoliberal reorganisation in society creates new conceptual, ethical and practical challenges for the practices of social work in the two countries. It is argued that the neoliberal privatisation of the reception of newcomers deteriorates the possibilities of social work to play its effective role in promoting social justice and social cohesion. Social work as a global and human rights profession should move beyond national boundaries and care nationalism in order to realise solidary goals and the international commitments of social work and social workers.

    The refugee ‘crisis’, welfare nationalism and social justice: Critical perspectives in Social Work Education2017Inngår i: Social work education in Europe: challenging boundaries promoting a sustainable future, 2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing refugee immigration to Europe has influenced almost all European countries including Sweden and Norway. Although the countries have relatively strong welfare states, the neoliberal reorganisation and increasing immigration during 2015-2016 has challenged the welfare states. This presentation critically examines the sociopolitical responses of Sweden and Norway to the increasing immigration and refugees and how it might have influenced social work education and practice. Based on a review of governmental responses to the increasing immigration, we present how the right-based welfare states of Sweden and Norway were tackling the recent refugee ‘crisis’ and if the new situation has influenced social work education and practice aimed at promoting social justice and social integration. Increasing global social problems with local consequences require new perspectives and competencies of practice, which urge educational institutions to adapt themselves to new the conditions.

    Fishing for development: A question for social work2012Inngår i: International Social Work, ISSN 0020-8728, E-ISSN 1461-7234, Vol. 55, nr 4, s. 504-521Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the consequences of the European Union’s fishing agreements with a few African countries for individuals in local communities. The empirical results show that European fishing in African waters has destructive consequences for local fishing communities and leads to increasing migration from fishing communities to Europe where immigrants are facing increasing discrimination. It is argued that social work should consider new global transformations and build global alliances in order to fight against structural inequalities and improve individual life chances.

    Field training in the Global South and unequal power relations: On the challenges of encounters2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    International field training offers unique opportunity for social work students to deepen their understandings of dominant social forces and power relations behind the reproduction of inequalities. Field training in the Global South is often influenced by many students’ colonial discourses and ignorance of their ‘whiteness of power’ received through their West-centric education in the Global North. This creates a challenge for social work educators to properly prepare students for field training in Global South. In this study, based on a mixed method approach, web survey, focus groups and document review of field reports, we examine how international field training influence Swedish and Norwegian students’ knowledge and personal and professional development. The study is guided by the questions: ‘What exemplify inequality of power encountered by the students conducting field training in the Global South?’, ‘What prevent and enable students in identifying unequal power relations during international field training?’, ‘How can social work educators ensure that social work students disentangle power dynamics at personal and structural levels? The results of the study show that international field training can both contribute to deepening students’ understanding of power and privileges and also reinforce their a priori ‘Us’ and ‘Them’- based knowledge. This means that social work educators bear a major responsibility for developing critical curriculums including pedagogical practices using critical reflection of how own biases, assumptions and dominant worldviews may affect the ways students perceive differences and power relations in international field trainings in the Global South.
