Title:
Neoliberalism, managerialism and the reconfiguring of social work in Sweden and the United Kingdom
Authors:
Harlow, Elizabeth; Berg, Elizabeth; Barry, Jim; Chandler, John
Abstract:
This paper considers some of the ways in which neoliberalism, through the processes of managerialism, has impacted on the occupation of social work in Sweden and the UK. It is argued that there are similar implications in both countries, through the managerial drive for increased performance in economy, efficiency and effectiveness, but also in the development of evidence based practice. Whilst the key focus of the paper is on similarities between these two countries, differences are also noted. There is also recognition of the way in which resistance to the reconfiguration of social work is taking shape.
