Registration is not Required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
At the symposium "We are all in this together*" – Internationalisation in Social Work, we seek to address current challenges according to the basic understanding of Social Work as a human rights profession (IFSW). How do global developments and crises change the conditions for the scope for action in Social Work? What are the resulting challenges for practice, training and research?

We invite social services users, practitioners, researchers, students, lecturers, civil society representatives, and representatives of marginalised groups, politicians and Social Work professionals to critically reflect on existing patterns, discuss new ideas, share findings of empirical research and best practices with each other, and use this opportunity for networking. Together we seek to advance theoretical and practical approaches to international Social Work.
