SOCIAL WORK AND ISSUES OF THE NINETIES IN KUWAIT

Auther : Dr. El-Farouk Z. Younis

 

        The study deals with the changing role of social work in Kuwait, particularly in the aftermath of the Iraqi aggression.  Emphasis is given to the psychosocial ramifications of the occupation period, changing needs and problems of the people of Kuwait and the challenges they pose to the social work profession.

         A brief review of the development of social work in Kuwait is followed by a discussion of its basic premises and the extent to which this has been influenced by the western model of social work.  In fact, the social and economic climate of Kuwait has made it possible for social work to flourish and develop rapidly in a short period.  Due to the close relation between social work practice and social welfare policy, the study analyzes the growing patterns of social welfare in Kuwait, taking into account the welfare state ideology, in an attempt to delineate the actual and or potential role of social work in shaping social policies.

         Within his framework the study discusses some of the major issues facing the Kuwaiti society in the nineties, namely the social impact of the Iraqi aggression on the life of the people after liberation, population policy and problems, welfare policy and local human resources, citizen participation and voluntary work in Kuwait.  Although the role of social work vis-à-vis the issues discussed is rather marginal, the prospects of development are still there.
