The conference invites social work researchers, educators and practitioners to reflect on social work’s role amid rapid societal changes: rising economic inequalities, demographic aging, increasing economic migration and its social effects, the rising number of displaced people, environmental degradation, the growth of technology, etc.
Looking at the recent developments in social work at the level of policy, practice, education and research, what has been social work’s level of success (or, on the contrary, lack of success) in responding to the global socio-economic challenges of present times? In this context, what is social work’s potential for future action toward social wellbeing? What changes must social work undergo to either accommodate or oppose the socio-economic trends of our times?
