Marking ten years of the Critical and Radical Social Work journal, Michael Lavalette, editor since its inception, tells the story of the emergence of the radical social work movement and the Social Work Action Network, and the role the journal has played in this.

He talks about how the journal creates a space for debate and discussion, combining academic research with voices from the frontline and the achievements of radical pioneers, with much of the content available for free. Critically, Michael addresses the challenges that social work and social workers face and the solutions radical social work has to offer.
