The Breakthrough of the Social: Practical Utopias, Wisdom and Radical Transformations - Social work

The Breakthrough of the Social: Practical Utopias, Wisdom and Radical Transformations - Social work

CONFERENCE commemorating 30 years of social work courses at the Inter-university centre (IUC).

2-6 September 2019 | Dubrovnik, Croatia

The conference will address the state of the art in the theory and practice of social work, address new ways of formulating and implementing social policy, examine key challenges in working with children and families, explore new approaches to children in conflict with law, present possibilities of community work and community action, confront issues of old age and investigate the possibilities for and obstacles to deinstitutionalisation.

The aim of the conference is to reassert the role of social work in societal change and to explore political, organisational and ethical issues through the lens of freedom and social transformation.

To do so participants will revisit historical sources and envisage new pathways, possible functions and responsibilities of the profession in order to enrich utopias with practical purpose through (indigenous) wisdom and by reinvigorating the anti-oppressive mandate of social work.
