Internationale Tagung: Participation in social work. Theory, Research and Practice

In the context of this event we want to explore the concept of participation in the tension between participation and co-determination.

Participation, understood as participation within the framework of the possibilities and needs of all, is more than just co-determination. It requires perception, cooperation and understanding, rather than selection from externally imposed choices. This applies to children as well as adults, on an individual level as well as on a structural and societal level. The concept needs to be addressed at all levels of social work theory, research and practice.

We would be pleased to welcome you in Cottbus to discuss participation in social work together.

The conference "Participation in Social Work. Theory, Research and Practice" is part of the DAAD HAW funded project "HAW International", which runs in the field of social work at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg from the end of 2019 until fall 2023.

We ask for registration until 01.05.2023 under the e-mail doinita.grosu(at)
