Social Work, Democracy and Human Rights – What Follows from the Dignity of the Human Person?
Kamiński Tadeusz
The paper presents social work as a means of implementing human rights and democracy as a necessary framework of its successful realization. It then focuses on one particular human right, whose observation by social workers is a matter of controversy, namely the right to life. It describes three different strategies a social worker can assume when dealing with a case of unwanted or unexpected pregnancy and concludes that all appeal to human rights and use the formal frames of democracy.
