Human Rights and Social Work

Friday, January 13, 2023: 7:00 AM-8:00 AM
Valley of the Sun E, 2nd Level (Sheraton Phoenix Downtown)

The Human Rights and Social Work Special Interest Group was selected to receive the 2022 Partners in Advancing Education for International (PIE) Social Work Award by the CSWE Global Commission. The award will be presented at CSWE's 2022 Annual Convention in Anaheim. Over the years, multiple presentations (SSWR and CSWE APM) and publications have emerged from our SIG group, and the SIG has collected and publicized human rights content presented at both national conferences in order to amplify their impact and to extend the reach of rights-based content in our profession. The momentum created by this first “human rights and social work” group contributed to the development of the Human Rights and Social Work Committee of the Global Commission, the Journal of Human Rights and Social Work, and many other books, events, and gatherings.
