    The contested field of social work in a retreating welfare state: the case of Sweden2015In: Critical and radical social work An international journal, ISSN 2049-8608, E-ISSN 2049-8675, Vol. 3, no 3, p. 357-374Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Social justice beyond neoliberal welfare nationalism: Challenges of increasing immigration to Sweden and Norway2017In: Critical and radical social work An international journal, ISSN 2049-8608, E-ISSN 2049-8675, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 301-317Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.
