Partnership: Department of Law and Political, Economic and Social Studies, University of Piemonte Orientale (P.I.), Department of Sociology and Social Research, University of Milano Bicocca, Italy, Social workers Council of Piedmont. The research has two aims: 1) analyzing the social workers’ opinions about their role in fighting against oppression and discrimination and in enacting a ‘political role’ and 2) exploring the types of oppression and discrimination in the everyday practice within social work agencies. This study was guided by a mixed-methods approach, which included 12 focus groups and an online survey. The analysis was carried out on a self-selected non-probabilistic sample of 3,887 social workers.
