Event Details

Room: Plenary

Under the fiscal constraints of austerity, as well as the ideas of new public management and evidence-based policy-making, social services have been discussed and reformed with efficiency and cost-effectiveness in mind. However, this sometimes obscures the more fundamental question: what are the principles which underpin social and care work? Beyond how social services are being delivered, the question is also how should we deliver social services? In the third pillar, ESSC’s participants will consider key values of social inclusion and community care, from the ethics of care through ethical ideas behind community care to practical questions of professional ethics.
