The collection of papers, published for the first time by the Centre for Civil Initiatives, presents the selected chapters on social work in the community. It will facilitate the leadership of community development process for students, social workers, local community practitioners, community leaders and institutions.
The papers are collected by lecturers from HAN University in Nijmegen, Netherlands and mostly present the social work practice in the communities of Great Britain and Netherlands. The papers can be easily understood and transferred to our action framework and conditions, due to the universal nature of available community social capital and resources, as well as its developing relationships.
The collection of papers will primarily be used for the purposes of organizing a summer course for social workers and other professions involved in the community development process, as well as for all civil society organizations, practitioners and students launching initiatives for community empowerment and development.
