18.04.2013- IFSW Europe Day on Human Rights at 3rd ENSACT Joint European Conference- Social Action in Europe: Towards Inclusive Policy and Practice.
IFSW, Europe is organizing the Symposium on Human Rights Theory and Practice for Social Workers during the 3rd ENSACT Join European Conference on 18th of April, 2013. The main idea of the Symposium is to highlight social workers role in promoting human rights.
Each day new violations of the rights contained in the Universal Declarations of Human Rights and in the international covenants appear and remain unfulfilled to several degrees, not only regarding economic, social and cultural rights, but as well civil and political rights.
The Symposium organized by IFSW, Europe will be an excellent opportunity to bring more (Theoretical and practical) information about the resources (organizational, institutional, documentary) concerning Human Rights application to Social Work practice as a basic value of the professional Ethics to Social Work. Also, the Symposium will give an excellent opportunity to discuss the possibilities of building IFSW Europe Region Human Rights Network.
The methodology of the Symposium will bring more visibility to the experiences with a “best approach” also in view to improve professional competencies and mutual support to prevent future violations of Human Rights on users and practitioners alike.
The participants (practitioners, teachers, students and researchers) are invited to bring their contributions to reinforce the IFSW European Region Human Rights Network as an emergence, recovering conscience and recognizing that the non-implementation of an universally accepted right can be equated to the violation of such a right.
