5 - 7 September 2019, Stockholm, Sweden
At this conference the relationship between migration and existing systems of social protection from various viewpoints, share evidence on good practices, and identify obstacles that keep many immigrants from achieving full citizenship will be discussed. The conference will offer rich opportunities for researchers from many countries to interact and exchange ideas about the social consequences of migration, particularly in relation to existing systems of social protection. Academic research has an important task in addressing some of the grand challenges of today, develop new perspectives, and ask questions of paramount interest also in the public debate and in politics.

IFSW European Conference
8 - 11 September 2019, Vienna, Austria
Its motto is “Social Protection and Human Dignity”, and it points out that political changes are challenging both our profession and our societies. Social work will stand up for a society that pays respect to every single person and struggles for inner cohesion and supportive communities. Main impulses will arise from the Plenary Sessions at the beginning and at the end of the Conference. Keynotes and Paper Sessions at the main venue will reflect the broad spectrum of social work. A Students Congress embedded in the Conference, will be taking place at the local University of Applied Sciences.
