Welcome Message


The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) will host the conference titled “Global Challenges Facing Social Welfare Policy, Education, Research and Practice”. The Conference is a joint initiative of the Department of Social Work from the CUHK, Asian and Pacific Islander Social Work Educators Association and Guangzhou Datong Social Work Service Center.


With the global challenges to social welfare policy, education, research and practice, the conference aims to provide an international platform for participants to foster rigorous and meaningful discussions on these global issues, and to deliberate contemporary social, health and mental health issues affecting the well-being of all populations.


The Conference will be held on June 21-22 at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. There will be professionals, academics, researchers, policymakers, students and other interested peoples, locally and internationally, attending the conference. We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference. Your presence will certainly contribute to the success of the conference, and to the future of our social welfare policy, education, research and practice.
