Social Work for Social Tranformation by and with ”People on the move”: Research, Skills and Practices
With reference to the Global Social Work Agenda (IFWS), this module will focus on reflecting, experimenting and co-building spaces for inclusive social transformation in challenging times of significant population displacements. It will give the opportunity to “persons on the move” to engage in open learning environments, which they might be deprived of because of their legal status. It will develop intercultural and international understandings of the structural conditions that contribute to inequality, social exclusion and oppression in an international context of interdependences. The participants will engage in social work methods and develop new skills in the domain of arts, communication, and expression to address social inequalities and to create spaces for (more) diversity. Human rights-based perspectives and anti-oppressive approaches can be keys to enriching research and practices that aim at empowering communities to be heard.
