Program

Conferences, lectures, workshops in small groups, visits of social facilities and institutions, cultural and social events are on the program of the Summer University; these various activities offer a unique opportunity to address social work issues and to identify similarities and differences with the participants’ own national or regional contexts.

  • Conferences and lectures will provide the chance to hear internationally renowned specialists from social work, social sciences and humanities faculties of Switzerland, Canada, China, France, India, United States, ...
  • Workshops organized for small groups, with methodological support, will enable students to develop their own reflections, based on their social work experiences as well as on the themes of the lectures.
  • Field visits to social work services and structures will help students understand how social workers deal with concrete issues related to vulnerability and empowerment.
  • Social evenings and other informal events will facilitate socialization between students and professors.

Switzerland, a multilingual and multicultural country in the heart of Europe, is ideally situated to host this fifth Summer University in social work.
