This two-day conference/webinar will explore the diverse histories of social work across the Commonwealth as a foundation for a proposed major study. This webinar therefore sets the scene for this bigger project, which comes at a significant moment in social work education, as the discourse on ‘decolonising’ the social work curriculum gathers momentum. The event includes context setting contributions from senior Commonwealth and academic figures and several presentations exploring the diverse histories of social work across the Commonwealth.

The Comparative Histories of the Development of Social Work across the Commonwealth Conference has been jointly organised by the Commonwealth Organisation for Social Work and the Institute of Commonwealth Studies.
