Dear colleagues and guests,
It is our honour to invite you to join us at the second interdisciplinary international conference on “Child maltreatment and well-being: challenges across borders, research and practices” which will be held at Freie Universität Berlin, Department of Education and Psychology, Division Social Work (Social Pedagogy), 21st – 22nd, March 2019. It is organized by an open network of researchers from social work, educational sciences, sociology and psychology from Croatia, Catalonia (Spain), Northern Ireland, the Netherlands, Israel and Germany. The conference will be on the current circumstances in which children and young people are growing up, focusing on challenges concerning child maltreatment and well-being. This will be done through considering contemporary social developments across borders as well as current political frameworks.
Similar to our first CMW-conference in Rijeka in July 2017, the aim of the 2nd conference is to bring together an interdisciplinary community of scientists and professionals working in the field of child maltreatment and child well-being and to exchange latest research, good practice, strategies and policies on children’s welfare across boarders. We invite researchers, faculty members, (PhD) students, professionals from a variety of disciplines (social sciences, social work, law, criminology, medicine, nursing, public health, teachers etc.) to join us in Berlin!
