International Social Work Education and Development Online Conference 2021: Regional Dialogue Session--- “Partnership in Social Work Education along the New Silk Road: Opportunities, Challenges and the Way Ahead” workshop was successfully held on 17 March 2021.


The ancient Silk Road was a network of trade routes connecting the East and West, and had played a significant role in facilitating economic and cultural exchanges among countries and civilizations along the way. Since 2000, the IASSW initiated a series of exchange and capacity-building programs among social work schools along the New Silk Road through its “Regional Resource Centre” located at “The Peking University-Hong Kong Polytechnic University China Social Work Research Centre”. The purpose in developing these partnership initiatives is to enhance regional connectivity, mutual understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity. In this workshop, social work educators from Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Israel, Kazakhstan, Thailand and Vietnam will reflect on their partnership experience, the insights they have gained through the process, and their vision for future collaboration.
