SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE DEVOTED TO THE GENERALIZATION OF THE SOCIAL WORK PROBLEMS
Today, the international conference titled “Current Issues of Scientific Generalization of Social Work Practice in the Republic of Armenia” was held at YSU.

The conference, organized jointly by YSU and the Armenian Association for Social Work, was dedicated to the 13th anniversary of the Faculty of Sociology.


Dean of the Faculty of Sociology Arthur Mkrtichyan made an opening speech. He congratulated all the staff and students of the faculty: “Today is our birthday. Today’s conference is our annual, traditional conference. I am very glad that this time it has an international character. This is not only a good occasion to listen to the opinions of others, but to present to the world our own position on this or that issue.”


Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Sociology Anahit Sahakyan expressed gratitude to the Armenian Social Work Association for supporting the work of the conference and mentioned that it is being held within the framework of the Association’s two programs.


“The first is a grant funded by the UNDEF, within which we are striving to enhance the participation of civil society and citizens in the ongoing social reforms, and the second one is a program implemented with the HILFSWERK AUSTRIA, funded by the European Union and Austrian Cooperation Fund, (Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan),” - said Mrs. Sahakyan.


Two plenary sessions were held in the framework of the conference titled “Transnational Social Work as a Scientific Basis of Social Work” and “Current Discourse on Social Work Generalization in the Republic of Armenia”. During the second session the necessity of the law “On Prevention of Domestic Violence” was also discussed, as well as the issues of the practice of social work in the sphere of child protection.


Participants from Austria, Croatia, USA, Norway and Germany made presentations.


After the conference, a memorandum of cooperation was signed between the Armenian Association of Social Work, the Armenian State Pedagogical University and Gyumri Pedagogical University.
