This work presents information and ideas about the role and organization of social workers in selected EC countries particulary, France and Germany. Comparisons are made of national policies and practice in relation to specific client groups, and new concerns requiring common responses are identified. This discussion is put in the context of an emerging social agenda of the European Community. The authors argue that EC social policies in relation to citizenship, participation and marginalization are consistent with the aims and concerns of social workers, and relevant to its future development at national and European level.
