Postcolonial Social Work and Local Knowledge

Through an interdisciplinary approach discussing the importance of local knowledge in different fields, this volume seeks to illustrate the nexus between social work and development in the Global South. The analytical and reflective contributions bring together scholars from various parts of the globe whose research focuses on the South. The texts show a new perspective on social work in the postcolonial and neoliberal era and emphasize the importance not only of the concept of indigenization but also of local knowledge and social movements for developing social work and relevant practices around the world.
