    Abstract [en]

    This article critically analyses empowerment projects in a local community in southern India and explores the shortcomings of development projects aimed at changing living conditions of marginalized people. It is argued that international social work should move beyond established empowerment theories and practices and include combating structural barriers in an emancipatory manner.

    Fishing for development: A question for social work2012In: International Social Work, ISSN 0020-8728, E-ISSN 1461-7234, Vol. 55, no 4, p. 504-521Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the consequences of the European Union’s fishing agreements with a few African countries for individuals in local communities. The empirical results show that European fishing in African waters has destructive consequences for local fishing communities and leads to increasing migration from fishing communities to Europe where immigrants are facing increasing discrimination. It is argued that social work should consider new global transformations and build global alliances in order to fight against structural inequalities and improve individual life chances.

    Discrimination and injustice against older people in Uganda: Implications for social work practice2019In: International Social Work, ISSN 0020-8728, E-ISSN 1461-7234, article id UNSP 0020872819858740Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article highlights how older people in Uganda experience discrimination and injustice. It discusses the legal framework for their protection, while acknowledging that not all professionals are aware of or have access to the legal mechanisms meant to safeguard older people's interests. It also discusses the role social work can play in protecting older people's rights. It further recommends that social workers work to increase solidarity between generations and bring about social justice and respect for diversity. It concludes by highlighting the need to bring anti-discriminatory social work into mainstream social work education and the professional regulation of social work.
