There is a lack of research into social worker perspectives in a Latin American context and a comparison of these with European social work practices that currently predominate in the literature. In response to this shortfall, a Nordic – Latin American research seminar on welfare issues was held at the University of Havana's Department of Sociology in January 2018. This special issue, ‘Welfare in Latin America and the Nordic countries’, was conceived during this seminar, as was the NORPART project ‘Cuban and Nordic welfare’ (2019 –2023), funded by the Norwegian Partnership Programme for Global Academic Cooperation. The guest editors (the authors of this editorial) participated in the events.
