Abstract

In this essay, a critical stance towards the study and daily practice of social intervention is advocated. According to the author, scientists as well as practitioners should stimulate and enhance (self-)criticism in the social sector. Currently, the Dutch social sector and its academic surroundings – including the journal Sociale Interventie (Social Intervention) – lack that kind of critical attitude. The English journal Critical Social Policy can serve as an example. This journal provides the opportunity for debate and critical reflection on social policy and social intervention.
