Abstract

Anti-oppressive practice, with its commitment to egalitarian relations, is an important way of thinking about social work interventions in an inegalitarian world. Its aims of improving social relations for marginalised and excluded peoples and securing social justice within an egalitarian and democratic framework remain important, despite postmodern attempts to destabilise the relevance of these objectives for practice. Although their realisation is fraught with difficulties, their continued endorsement is crucial to social well-being at both individual and collective levels. Thus, continuing to pursue the objectives of anti-oppressive practice has to remain on the social work agenda for the foreseeable future.
