Vol. 4 No. 1 (2021): Student edition 2021
Notes from the Editors:
This edition of Social Work & Policy Studies: Social Justice, Practice and Theory aims to illuminate the scholarship emerging from students currently completing degrees in social work. The collection includes students at all stages of their studies: from early undergraduate years to doctoral candidates. This student work reveals the issues at the forefront of social work activism, applying a critical lens to global social justice challenges including: minority rights (LGBTQ+ rights; disability rights; First Nations Peoples; the right to die) and structures of oppression (prisons and child protection systems). Excitedly, this edition includes the perspectives of students from Australia and Canada. We hope you the reader are as impressed as we are with the evident passion these students bring to their work. We hope the journal is a stepping stone for these scholars to ongoing engagement with critical ideas about social justice theory and practice.
