Reflecting on the role of human rights in the framework of university classes on social work
Aims / objectives
The aim of the method is to encourage young trainees (students in social work and social policy) to think in terms of social work based on human rights. At its core is an appreciation of universal principles such as the equality of all human beings, inherent dignity, the right to self-determination and living in peace and security. In this approach, social workers are not just “agents of the state” but become “agents of exchange”.
