We are approaching the opening of registrations for our World Conference on Social Welfare and Social Development to be held in Stockholm from 8th to 12th July 2012. The other important date for your diaries is the meeting of the General Assembly of members which will be held after the closure of the conference on Thursday 12th July. The meeting of the Board will be the day after on Friday 13th July.
The call for abstracts is due to close next week on the 30th November. Although the response has been excellent we could do with more abstracts in the area of religion under the first theme and water under the second theme. (Go to http://www.swsd-stockholm-2012.org/Programme-Themes.aspx to see the themes).
This is your conference and don’t be afraid to submit an abstract – you don’t have to be an academic. Practitioner viewpoints are as valid as a research paper.
