This course focuses on policy practice of social work. We more specifically focus on the interaction between policy, non-profit organizations and social work. We first zoom into different notions of social justice. The work of Nussbaum and Nancy Fraser stands central. The course furthermore deals with a diversity of perspectives on policy practice, advocacy and structural social work. We also focus on different strategies of policy practice. During these courses the link between theory and recent practices of advocacy be made by focusing on the perspective of social work, civil society actors, policy makers and target group.
