Welcome to the Special Interest Group Page
About the SIGs
ESWRA has over 20 active Special Interest Groups. These Groups, led by SIG convenors, enable
ESWRA members to network and collaborate on specific issues. The Special Interest Groups meet at
least once a year at the European Conference for Social Work Research and regularly share
information and discussion on line. There are twice yearly Newsletters and a SIG Events program
during the European Conference for Social Work that allows for all SIG members to come together
and to network with each other; at ECSWRA 2019 15 SIGs took part.
Aim of the SIGs
The aim of SIGs is to provide a focal point for networking, exchange of ideas, information and
collaboration in an area of research interest.
