Ethical issues and dilemmas are being increasingly discussed in social work theory and practice, in policy decisions and research. There are several reasons for such a strong interest in ethical debates in the current social sciences, including social work: the growing gap between rich and poor in the industrialised countries as well as the gaps between different regions and continents;

conflicts between cultures, traditions and different religions in a highly interconnected globalised world; man-made environmental disasters, the unimaginable development of biotechnology and the punitive states, to name a few.

The impact of these developments on social work is quite crucial, considering both, the raise of the authoritarian state as well as a relative weakness and poverty of the state vis-à-vis an all-powerful financial market fuelled by a neoliberal thought which not only gives priority to the interests of the economy, but also legitimises social hierarchy and inequality on the basis of the ideology of meritocracy. This development is undermining the premises of democracy, which is based not only on equal political rights, but also on the concept of fair distribution of wealth and symbolic resources. Neoliberalism in social work implies an insistence that priority be given to efficiency and provides a powerful stimulus for the commodification of social work practice. Thus social workers not only have to undergo scrutiny concerning their efficiency;

they also have to accept and execute a highly discriminating social order by narrowing rules of access and by normalising and sanctioning those who supposedly do not meet societal demands and do not “fit in society”.
