This book presents examples and critical interpretations of social work and child welfare politics from Nordic perspectives. It specifically addresses the questions of the impact of the Nordic sociocultural context for child welfare and social work with children and families. Drawing on contemporary research and debates from Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, this book considers how social work and child welfare politics are produced and challenged as global and local ideas and practices. The starting point of this volume is mostly thematic, explorative and eclectic — aiming to cover different topical discussions and ongoing transformations within Nordic child welfare — instead of following a single theoretical or methodological approach when analysing Nordic welfare policies and practices. An overview of the chapters included in this book is also provided.
