The network had their first working group meeting on April 25, and are planning a new meeting towards the end of summer. Their activities will focus on teaching across institutions, student exchange, teacher exchange and research projects, conferences and publishing possibilities through “Journal of Comparative Social Work”. The TN will also continue to publish their newsletter, and the newest one will be found on the TN pages soon.

As always the Thematic Network welcomes ideas and suggestions on what they could do. Please send your ideas by email to
