The fourth and final part of the book is dedicated to four examples of practice that present the theme of solidarity. In the PAP, solidarity is an ethical principle that dictates the positioning of the social worker vis-a-vis service users. By analysing situations in which social workers succeeded in standing by service users and other situations in which they were not successful, this part of the book aims to enrich the professional imagination and repertoire of solidarity in different contexts and settings.

As Europe’s public realms face upheaval, this is the first book to identify how social solidarity is being reinvented from below and redefined from above. Interdisciplinary transnational approaches provide new insights into the relationship between national and transnational social solidarity across Europe.Valuable to students, policy makers and scholars, it reveals social solidarity as the defining pillar of European integration, bringing a greater dimension and integrity beyond democracy across nation states.
137 FIVE Explaining supranational solidarity Juan Díez Medrano, Irina Ciornei and Fulya Apaydin Introduction The 2008 financial crisis highlighted the European Union’s enormous regional and national economic inequalities. It also revealed significant social distance between the citizens of different European Union member states and the persistence of national stereotypes. This prompted a shift from exclusive attention to European identification to a new focus on European solidarity. This chapter is motivated by that interest. Pan-European solidarity guided
119 FIVE Fraternity and solidarity Fraternity The idea of fraternity is based in the idea that people have responsibilities to each other. Fraternity was defined after the French Revolution, in the constitution of year III, in the following terms: Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you; do constantly to others the good which you would wish to receive from them.238 The vagueness of the definition suggests that, despite its place in the revolutionary slogan, the idea of fraternity was not clearly understood. This is a version of the ‘golden
49 FOUR Towards a globalisation of solidarity? Menno Fenger and Kees van Paridon Introduction Ever since Emile Durkheim introduced the concept of solidarity into the social sciences, many authors have evaluated this topic, often with quite different views. The question of whether or not communities, nations or other systems have enough ‘solidarity’ has been the source of numerous fierce scientific (and societal) debates. This has not changed in the era of globalisation. Again, opinions differ greatly on the impact of globalisation on solidarity. Some

157 TEN Social solidarity in post-socialist countries Damir Josipovič This chapter argues that recent socio-economic transitions have led to the erosion of social solidarity in post-socialist countries within Central and Eastern Europe. It is argued that the economic imperatives of capitalism have forced governments to abandon previous policy and welfare arrangements, and access to local labour markets, resulting in the attrition of legally granted social rights. This unexpected dissipation of social rights has led to dramatic changes in the demographic
Felix Anderl’s book is a stimulating analysis of the decline of the social movement against the World Bank and the rise of a new form of transnational rule.
Reflecting on the transnational mobilizations of the 1990s, the book examines activists’ struggles to sustain their momentum since then. It shows how the opening up of world economic institutions contributed to complex rule in global governance, creating access for some while weakening their critique and fragmenting the overall social movement.
The book bridges International Relations and Social Movement Studies to observe international organizations and social movements in their interaction, demonstrating how social movements are divided and ruled in the absence of a ruler.
39 THREE Intergenerational ambivalence: beyond solidarity and conflict1 Kurt Lüscher and Andreas Hoff New challenges for theory and research Intergenerational family and kin relationships have increasingly become a focus of social science research since the 1980s. There are several reasons for this development, with the most frequently mentioned reason being demographic change. Changes in population structure, however, are embedded in broader social, economic and cultural changes and therefore specific attention should be paid to intergenerational
