This chapter draws upon the country case studies in order to offer some conclusions on policy practice in social work in the eight countries. The findings underscore differences in the discourse and education with regard to policy practice in the various countries. While policy practice remains a marginal form of social practice, the level of engagement and its form differ across nations. The authors identify diverse routes through which social workers engage in policy practice and seek to identify the reasons for this. They then present a research agenda for studying this type of social work practice.
