Abstract [sv]

This theme issue was inspired by a Nordic conference for social workers in Lillestrøm, Norway, in the spring of 2006. Different forms of societies give rise to their particular social problems and their interpretation. Hence, it is relevant to ask what general societal trends we can observe in the future and how these may cause changes in social work of the future. Some such trends are globalisation, an increase in the proportion of elderly, marketisation and limitations in the Nordic countries’ discretion to pursue traditional welfare policies. Drawing from the six articles in this issue, four overarching issues can be identified: approaches to knowledge, the social worker caught in the system, solidarity and orientation towards users.
