In the wake of widespread austerity policies in a number of nations throughout Europe, the time is right for an assessment of the current state of welfare and caring professions in the region. This book offers in-depth understanding of the everyday work of professionals in these fields in different national and social contexts, viewed through an interdisciplinary lens and from different empirical and theoretical perspectives. It also covers aspects of education within welfare professions and how that differs across Europe.
