Human Rights and Social Justice: Social Action and Service for the Helping and Health Professions

Offering a unique perspective that views human rights as the foundation of social justice, Joseph Wronka’s groundbreaking text outlines human rights and social justice concerns as a powerful conceptual framework for policy and practice interventions for the helping and health professions. This highly accessible, interdisciplinary text urges the creation of a human rights culture as a “lived awareness” of human rights principles, including human dignity, nondiscrimination, civil and political rights, economic, social, and cultural rights, and solidarity rights. The Second Edition includes numerous social action activities and questions for discussion to help scholars, activists, and practitioners promote a human rights culture and the overall well-being of populations across the globe. Intended Audience This text is applicable for courses in social work, psychology, sociology, public health, law, medicine, philosophy, political science, as well as “newer” disciplines like peace studies, world citizenship, and environmental sustainability. Scholars, activists, and practitioners will find it a valuable reference for years to come. Cited as one of the great books for Social Workers!
