International Social Work Conference – Rwanda – the Land of a Thousand Hills

Dr Karin Cooper presented a paper in Kigali, Rwanda at the International Social Work Conference.  The paper entitledThe theory-practice nexus in social work education: using Forum Theatre as a preparation for practice’ emerged from a research project funded by the Ferens Education Trust and LEAP at the University of Hull.

This inspirational international conference included cultural performances and a range of presentations from social work service users, researchers, educators, practitioners, students and policy makers from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East – to name but a few.  A poignant march through the streets of Kigali on ‘World Social Work Day’, advocating social justice and human rights, culminated in a gathering at the Kigali Genocide Memorial to commemorate the 1994 Genocide and lay a wreath.
