Looking at the recent developments in social work at the level of policy, practice, education and research, what has been social work’s level of success in responding to the global, regional, and national socio-economic challenges of present times? In this context, what is social work’s potential for action toward social wellbeing during the following years? What changes must social work undergo to either accommodate or oppose the socio-economic trends of our times?
