A collection of research works concerning social work and conducted in 2015-2019 by students involved in various fields of social, educational and aid activity as part of Erasmus Mundus ADVCANCES (Advanced Development in Social Work) master studies. The major asset of the publication is the presentation of different aspects of social and educational support in Poland, as well as social work and other assistance activities from the multicultural perspective in view of global changes and international education.

The texts written by authors who have practical experience gained in their own countries and who are pursuing international careers inspire discussion on different aspects of social work all over the world. Increasing mobility of researchers, practitioners and users of assistance activities forces changes in thinking about the objectives and functions of these initiatives, which should be enriched by the outside perspective. There is no better way to discuss the identity of discipline, the variety of attitudes and universality of aid standards than recognising the diversity of perceiving the same phenomena.

The researchers, students, academics and practitioners will find here many interesting issues, which can stimulate further discussions, research and social practices related to providing assistance to other people.

Keywords: international social work, social problems, activism, helping professions, social change.
