SWRD 16th Annual Social Work Research Day – March 18th, 2024
Carleton University Richcraft Hall (Rooms 2220-2224-2228)

Submission Deadline: January 17th 2024

The Center for Studies on Poverty and Social Citizenship (CSPSC) welcomes paper and poster submissions for the 16th annual Social Work Research Day (SWRD16). The theme for SWRD16 is “Redefining Social Citizenship: Sharing Social Work Knowledge”,  highlighting the past and emerging insights about social citizenship,  political, civil, and social engagement with community.

Abstract submissions should focus on the practical implications of your research for social work practice, policy, and discourse. How does your presentation inform or challenge current practices, and what potential impact does it have on the broader field of social work? We invite submissions to engage with how sharing research and social work knowledge can contribute to social change and influence a social work understanding of social citizenship. Accepted abstracts will be notified in February 2024. Paper and poster presenters will receive a gift card as an honorarium.

Submission Instructions:
