20th Anniversary Virtual Issue

Since its inception, the IJSW has promoted rigorous, empirical, and theoretical analyses of social welfare policies and practices from comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives. With a wide angle scope, our aim has been to publish high- quality work of applied social science that is relevant to the issues of the day. In this endeavor, we have benefitted immensely from the intellectual partnership between the Department of Social Work, Stockholm University, and the School of Social Welfare, California, Berkeley - the institutions with which we and the members of the IJSW Editorial Board are associated.
