Last week FO, The Norwegian Association of Social Workers, hosted Ana Radulescu, IFSW European Regional President and Rory Truell, IFSW Secretary-General. During the visit, FO made a podcast with the two IFSW representatives. The 35-minute interview discusses the ongoing learning process of the social work profession with examples from the global pandemic and how learning for the Syrian refugee crisis sharpened the profession’s responses to Ukrainian refugees. Further examples include how learning from Yemeni and Northern Irish social workers has helped to inform the social work strategies under war conditions in Ukraine. The role of humanitarian aid and its differences with social work are also discussed.
