Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the 5th Conference on Advancement of Social Work in Post-Soviet Countries: “Social work as a tool to promote the image of social work”,which will be held in Kemerovo, Russian Federation on the 22th-24th of April, 2019, alongside with First congress of social workers of Siberia: “Social workers of Siberia – the key to social welfare of the population”.

The Conference is organized by the Russian Union of Social Workers and Social Pedagogues, in collaboration with the National Association of Social Workers in Moldova.

This conference will continue the dialogue among social work educators and professionals in post-soviet countries that was launched at the conferences in Moldova (2015 and 2016), Georgia (2017) and in Azerbaijan (2018). The subsequent 5th Conference in Kemerovo will once again offer a platform for an exchange of ideas, strategies and experiences for the advancement of social work education and professionalization. The conference welcomes social work colleagues from the global social work community to contribute their knowledge, ideas, and best practices toward a better social work practice in the 21st century.

We are glad to inform you that one representative from post-soviet countries will be financially supported by the Organizing committee. For the person chosen by the national association from each post-soviet country there will be purchased one ticket Moscow-Kemerovo-Moscow and booked a hotel in Kemerovo for the period April 22th – 24th. In order to make all the arrangements and overcome the possible confusions, after you will inform us about the name of the candidate, please send to the Organizing committee () the travel ticket to Moscow as soon as possible.  The number of tickets is limited.

Please inform us by March 10th which institution you would like to attend on the 22th of the April and which round table you want to attend on 23th of the April.
