This book takes a future-oriented perspective that aims to move beyond well-worn critiques to envision constructive and sustainable futures for social work and social development in Africa.Using case-studies from Lesotho, Botswana, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Namibia, Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda, and Tanzania, established areas of practice are covered, such as child protection; working with older people; people with disabilities; mental health; mainstream services targeting women as well as emerging areas of social work practice, such as humanitarian assistance in post-conflict situations; work with immigrants and refugees; and the training of community-based workers.
