Ana Radulescu and Herbert Paulischin work on analyzing the results of the survey: Social workers have Human Rights! How do we advocate for ourselves and for the profession?

During these days, Ana Radulescu and Herbert Paulischin work on analyzing the results of the survey related to the topic: Social workers have Human Rights! How do we advocate for ourselves and for the profession?

We received a total of 859 answers from 27 countries. We would like to thank you for taking time out to participate in our survey.

The results will be presented on the Delegates Meeting of IFSW Europe that is going to take place on Zagreb in mai 2016.

The analysis will be used as a basis for discussion that take place during the seminar: Human Rights violations and Challenges of Social Workers across Europe (Zagreb on 16 of May).


Social workers are invited to take part in a consultation by filling in this questionnaire. The consultation will provide insight into the ways the social workers advocate for themselves and for their profession.

This questionnaire is not related to how social workers help individuals to grow aware of and exercise their rights. It rather focuses on how social workers use human rights principles to inform about, promote and assert their profession in the society. The results of this questionnaire will be presented at the 2016 IFSW European Delegates Meeting in Croatia.

The questionnaire is launched by the Social Workers Associations of Austria (OBDS) and Romania (ASproAS) together with the Human Right Group of International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW).
