Abstract: Social work in Romania is deeply rooted in the religious charity of the 14th century. Social work education was established in the interwar period. After 25 years of ideologically based banning during the communist regime, social work education and the profession are being re-built, while also facing the challenges of global neoliberalism discourse and its local enacting. The author discusses recent developments and current challenges of social work in Romania.
El trabajo social en Rumania tiene sus raíces en la caridad religiosa del siglo XIV. La educación en el trabajo social se estableció en el período de entreguerras. La educación en trabajo social y la profesión están siendo reconstruidas después de haber sido prohibidas 25 años por motivos ideológicos durante el régimen comunista, aunque se enfrentan a los desafíos del discurso del neoliberalismo global y su puesta en práctica local. El autor analiza la evolución reciente y los retos actuales del trabajo social en Rumania.
Il servizio sociale in Romania ha le sue radici nella beneficenza religio-sa del XIV secolo. La formazione degli assistenti sociali è stata avviata nel periodo tra le due guerre. Dopo 25 anni di divieto ideologico-comunista, la formazione e la professione sono state ripensate con l'o-biettivo di affrontare le sfide neoliberiste poste a livello globale e loca-le.
