Edinburgh 18 - 20 April 2018

Social Work in Transition: Challenges for Social Work Research in a Changing Local and Global World

We invite you to join us for this exciting event to be held at The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, in what is our centenary year. Social Work at Edinburgh University began in 1918, and we are using 2018 as an opportunity to look backwards and forwards, nationally and internationally, at what social work is now and might be in the future.  The themes for the conference can be viewed here.

We hope you will get a taste of Scotland and Scottish life and hear more about our centenary project, while taking part in what promises to be a thought-provoking conference and meeting-place for researchers from across Europe and beyond.  Edinburgh is a very lively city, and we have some special treats in store for you - find out more on the Social and Cultural pages of the website
