Professionally, social workers are organised in bodies of different size and impact from local to international and focus on providing help to individuals or communities suffering from poverty, lack of opportunities or information, social injustice, persecution, abuse or violation of rights.Graduates of Social Work studies can practice their profession as soon as they are awarded a license or are professionally registered. The professional activity of social workers is usually structured as social, political or economic research, advocacy, community development, social welfare analysis and implementation, counselling or even social case solving.
