SocNet 98 International University Week:

Participants IUW 2015 Bremen

Participants of the SocNet98 IUW 2015 in Bremen

We kindly invite social work students from all European countries as well as university lecturers to participate in this international program. We especially call for a participation of universities from the SocNet98 network but also would like to encourage students, researchers, lecturers and social workers from other backgrounds to be part of this week.

The IUW 2015 in Bremen will focus on the different aspects of social work’s methods as well as social work methodology. As a discipline and profession, it can build on a big variety of methods and techniques for its interventions. And the broader frameworks of social work methodology guide social workers through the process of developing and creating interventions with different stakeholders. They are oriented along the professional basis and ethical understanding of social work.

From an international perspective, it is highly relevant to share, discuss and compare the different approaches, experiences, theories and research results about social work’s manifold methods and methodology. This should enable exchanges about the variety of approaches as well as to enlarge knowledge about bringing theory into practice in different settings and welfare contexts. This IUW aims to provide a broad forum for the full variety of methods and methodologies and invites contributions from the different participant’s backgrounds.

The IUW 2015 in Bremen will include workshops, field-related excursions as well as social activities and offers a chance to visit Bremen and the north-west of Germany. Currently we calculate to invite about 50 visiting and 50 local students as well as about 15 lecturers.
