European Conference for Social Work Research 2021 - update

The ESWRA Board and the University of Bucharest have been carefully exploring the different possibilities for delivering the European Conference for Social Work this year, including a hybrid conference with on-site and online components, or a completely online conference. In our considerations, we wanted to ensure that everyone could participate equally, that we could be confident in making arrangements with certainty, and that the financial considerations would ensure the longer-term sustainability of the Association. As a result, the ESWRA Board and Local Organising Committee have agreed that the conference will be delivered completely online on 5th – 7th May 2021. We will be working closely with our partners and look forward to sharing more details with you soon.
