This chapter looks at poverty and human needs in an integrated framework. Within a perspective-based discussion, it analyzes the role of the social work profession in advancing the practice for policy change. Perspective building on poverty in international social work education and practice is imperative in the current context of increasing disparities in global development. The dynamic nature of poverty needs a vigilant approach from the social work profession through global alliances with civil society, NGOs, and multidisciplinary professional networks. Social work research should explore the linkages of poverty issues with governance and policy-induced institutional structures, which should inform advocacy and context-specific aspects within poverty eradication policies. Finally, social work interventions should mobilize people to form a constructive movement for policy change on poverty.
