Title:
Legal bases of social work
Authors:
Preston-Shoot, Michael ( 0000-0002-9347-0524 )
Abstract:
This article explores the relationship between law and social work. It navigates the importance of the relationship and the similarities and differences between the objectives of legal and social work practitioners. It critically reviews transnational conventions and how individual countries have legislated to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and adults at risk. It reflects on how far nation-states uphold human rights and the rule of law and evaluates how social work has been positioned and has performed in different legislative contexts.
