The current economic and social crisis in the EU has an impact on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD, 2006), a challenge that has only just begun to emerge as a collective task within social work and has matured as an important topic in social work education and research within European social work. This paper brings together findings from two countries (Luxembourg and Slovenia), comparing the situation of persons with disabilities and focusing on the differences and similarities between the two countries. Description: Both countries are among the smallest within the EU, but are very diverse, both economically and politically. Empirical data, based on national surveys (EU-SILC-2014) and policy analysis emerging from a multi-annual work organized within the ANED group (Academic Network of European Disability Experts, 2014) in which both authors have been involved for several years, demonstrate country-specific realities, social work contexts and approaches within social work education towards promoting human rights, social and economic equalities and the dignity and worth of peoples with disabilities. In both countries, these social work foundations come up against national austerity policies and neo-liberal ideology, which increase the risk of poverty and give rise to social exclusion and the devaluation of persons with disabilities or mental disorders. Conclusions drawn from the study indicate that social work and social work education can benefit from multi-national comparative approaches. In particular, the net-based tools of the ANED group are a very useful and user-friendly accessible resource that can help students, practitioners and researchers in social work become aware of European inclusion policies and statistical data on inclusion. European Social work education should benefit more from this international database to broaden the view on social problems across Europe and to reflect on different approaches to promote social inclusion.

Abstract: This article draws on a review of literature on inclusion taking into account the different origins of the concept and shedding light on standpoints from some non-English-speaking countries. The analysis shows a lack of coherence in defining inclusion. Ethical principles and scientific considerations about inclusion are often mixed. Finally it is often disregarded that, if the concept of inclusion is subsequently re-thought, this implies a crucial change in education policy. Contrary to the expectations of the experts in inclusion, there is only little reference to empirical research that confirms the expected positive effects of inclusion. This article is based on an oral presentation given at the FICE Congress, “Ways Toward Inclusion – A Challenge for All of Us!”, held at Berne, Switzerland, October 8 to 12, 2013. Keywords: education policy, evidence-based, heterogeneity, inclusion, integration [less ▲]

Summary: Following the so-called Bologna reform in Luxembourg, 70 supervisors assessed the knowledge and skills of employees having qualified with a Bachelor’s degree under the recently introduced curriculum in social work and pedagogy. The supervisors were solicited as part of quality assurance regarding the study programme and their assessments were gathered by means of a questionnaire. The University of Luxembourg funded the study. Findings: The newly qualified practitioners were evaluated as adequately trained, while the need was highlighted for a better understanding of the process through which beginner practitioners are socialised into the profession. The results furthermore suggest that practice proficiency extensively draws on generic skills of particular relevance to the social professions. Applications: The findings prompt a more specific focus on generic skills and their role in developing proficiency during practice placements as well as during the first year of employment. Overall, the study serves as one example of how to evaluate the readiness to practise of newly qualified practitioners in the social professions. The output of such skills assessments could inform on any need for curriculum revision at a local level. With a cross-national and comparative approach, evaluations of this kind could potentially guide any adaptations needed in response to the increasing internationalisation of social problems.
