Summary

What is environmental justice? Why is it important to social work? Social work has a long history with the term "environment" as part of our guiding Ecological Framework. Yet frequently, the assessment of the environment is left out or seen as a difficult domain to understand as part of the complexities of the human experience, particularly for those who are vulnerable, oppressed and poor. This book contains nine articles that showcase environmental justice work in social work practice and in educational settings from around the world. The profession now seems ready to ensure that the "environment" is once again given the consideration it deserves when we are assessing problems in living. These articles were selected for their helpfulness in moving the profession forward conceptually while offering practical tools for the classroom, institutions, and for further scholarship. This book was originally published as a special issue of Social Work Education: The International Journal.
