In conjunction with World Social Work Day 2015 (which is on March 17, 2015), the Malaysian Association of Social Workers (MASW) and the Society for the Promotion of Human Rights (PROHAM) are hosting a discussion on the theme:-
‘PROMOTING THE DIGNITY AND WORTH OF PEOPLES: From Social Work & Human Rights Perspectives'
There is a global commitment to respect human dignity and human rights. This is at the heart of social work practice as we live the reality of social injustice. Our experience and research tells us that people, systems and the way we exist together can change for the better.
Together, we can create a better world. This conviction is the driving force behind the global social work community's efforts (spearheaded by IFSW, IAASW and ICSW) in establishing The Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development. (Document enclosed for review)
