Perspectives on Racism and the Human Services Sector: A Case for Change

By Carl E. James

© 1996

Today's social services agencies are faced with the challenge of responding to the diverse needs and expectations of a growing multicultural population. This volume examines race and racism in Canada from historical and contemporary perspectives and explores the extent to which these factors operate within social services systems related to immigration, settlement, the justice system, health, and education. The contributors, including practitioners, educators, and policy makers, argue for specific changes in current approaches to service delivery and provide practical suggestions for services that make it possible for various communities to be served more effectively. The collection also proposes an anti-racism approach to service provision to produce a system that is beneficial to all Canadians, particularly Aboriginals and racial and ethnic minorities.
