Publisher:

In the context of social work, many critical issues in Asia's "Four Tigers" are profoundly different from their Western counterparts. It is possible that certain elements of a common culture have different effects on social work as a profession. What are the effects of a strong family structure on social development? Can these countries retain their tradition and cultural identity while reconciling the impact of Western influences? The purpose of this paper is to examine how Chinese culture gives Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan their specific characteristics in social work and to assess the extent to which these societies are dealing with their recurrent social, political and economic dilemmas. Issues and strategies in which social work can be directed toward the realisation of social goals are also discussed.
