The Role of the Social Worker in Adoption - Ethics and Human Rights: An enquiry

Social workers’ decision making is at the heart of adoption and needs to be subject to ethical scrutiny from within the profession and from without. This Enquiry explores the ethical and human rights dimensions of social work practice when making life changing decisions about children and their families, which often have wider and long-lasting implications for communities and society in general. This Enquiry into sensitive and complex areas of practice is a start to further discussions and debate about improvements.
