Because social issues matter
Even in Germany, social issues such as poverty, unemployment and violence continue to be major concerns. Characteristics such as our (social) origin, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and many more have an impact on our educational prospects and our ability to contribute to society. Social workers strive to empower and liberate people and to solve, alleviate or prevent social problems. Social justice, human rights and respect for diversity lay the foundation for achieving these goals.
