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.

Objectives of the SIGs

SIGs provide the infrastructure for the furtherance of high-quality social work research in a European and international context. SIGs are encouraged to:

  • Arrange activities/meetings within the ESWRA conference related to their research interest area with the aim of contributing to the development of a research culture within ESWRA as a whole
  • Communicate their ideas/activities/work by highlighting this on the EWSRA website
  • Contribute to the ESWRA conference through the organisation of symposia, papers
  • Encourage participation and promote the benefits of their SIG
  • Provide an annual update to the Board of their activities
