Social Work as Emancipatory Practice

Creating Pathways towards Social Justice

Gothenburg June 17th-19th 2024


FORSA/NASSW, together with the Department of Social Work at the University of Gothenburg, welcomes you to the 2024 international conference on social work research, education, and practice! The conference is organized with support from CSA and FORTE.


In the midst of ongoing ecological, economic and political crises, the aim of this conference is to explore contemporary challenges and debates across the fields of social work in order to envision how social work can act as a catalyst for change. If social work is to credibly invoke values and ideals such as social justice, human rights, equality, and freedom from socially imposed oppression, we need to find ways of creating explicit spaces and practices of emancipation. It is important that such aspirations can be articulated and claimed as part of the struggle for a more inclusive democracy.
