Abstract [en]

The Global Statements of Ethical Principles of Social Work highlight the need to educate social workers about values and ethics. The ethical challenges and dilemmas connected to social work training in international contexts have not received much attention in social work research and education. This paper explores how post-colonial, west-centric and neoliberal thinking and practices have impacted upon international social work including field training and highlights our opportunities as social work educators to respond in an ethical manner by critical pedagogy and anti-oppressive social work approaches. The study is based on mixed methods of web survey and focus groups with Norwegian and Swedish social work students who have conducted international field training. The preliminary results of the study show that in order to reduce multilevel vulnerability, the values of social justice should be placed at the core of social work education and international field training.
