The Potential of Civil Society - an Opportunity for Social Work


In the context of the current welfare state situation, social service providers deal with the question of innovation, its traditional methods and procedures, requiring multidisciplinary cooperation. Often, social service providers respond to this situation with institutions establishment through business thought that should be linked to social work’s ethics, based on community services and business integration, thus social enterprise establishment. This text is a part of a dissertation thesis, in which the central idea is to differentiate the social work conception in the field of social entrepreneurship (or in the field of social enterprises) from the market logic efforts to dominate this profession. The text aims to discuss potential solutions to the current state of resources, that social work can be found in the area of civil society.
