Rising global poverty, widespread conflict and post-conflict reconstruction, and the large population of displaced persons-these are a few global situations that are adversely affecting the well-being of millions of people.

This book draws together the practice wisdom emerging within 'the broad scope of international social work practice.

Using an integrated perspectives approach, which incorporates global, human rights, ecological, and social development perspectives, the authors prepare readers to actively respond to modern global challenges that are critical to the well-being of people, communities, nations, and ultimately all of us.
