Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The contrast to all forms of oppression and the promotion of equality are often conceived as goals to be pursued above all at the political level and in the overall design of social services, while in social work at the case level they seem to remain in the background. The case analysis presented in this article wants to undermine this idea. The text proposes a critical reflection on an intervention actually carried out some years ago, aimed at a young Nigerian family who immigrated to Italy for economic reasons. Discriminatory elements are highlighted in the action of the social service, present despite the good intentions and the fact that the help provided was useful. We then go on to outline some possible alternative lines of action, taking inspiration from the six strategies of Social Work against the economic and social crisis, proposed by the IFSW a few years ago.
