Race, Racism and Social Work: Contemporary Issues and Debates

by Michael Lavalette, Laura Penketh - £27.99  Policy Press (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781447307075 | ISBN 10: 1447307070

Without a doubt, structural and institutionalised racism is still present in Britain and Europe, a factor that social work education and training has been slow to acknowledge.
 
In this timely new book, Lavalette and Penketh reveal that racism towards Britain’s minority ethnic groups has undergone a process of change. They affirm the importance of social work to address issues of ‘race’ and racism in education and training by presenting a critical review of a this demanding aspect of social work practice. Original in its approach, and with diverse perspectives from key practitioners in the field, the authors examine contemporary anti-racism, including racism towards Eastern European migrants, Roma people and asylum seekers. It also considers the implications of contemporary racism for current practice.
 
This is essential reading for anyone academically or professionally interested in social work, and the developments in this field of study post 9/11.
