11th European Conference for
Social Work Research

6-8 April 2022
Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Welcome to the 11th European Conference for Social Work Research of the European Social Work Research Association.

The ESWRA and the Local Organizing Committee are very pleased to welcome you at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. After three years we can meet again in real life.

We live in complex times, both socially as economically. This conference focuses on enhancing and sustaining social inclusion through social work research. In the context of growing inequality social inclusion is more important than ever. And it is the task for social work research to address relevant societal challenges and to contribute to solutions for these challenges.

We hope and think that this conference provides an interesting platform for discussions about this in an European context.

We are looking forward to these discussions, but also to three days with pleasure and being together.
