On September 5th, 2017, the Tripartite committee composed of representatives from IASSW, ICSW, IFSW met in Paris to discuss preparation for the 2018 Dublin Joint World conference and to determine the site for the 2020 Joint World Conference.
Following our meetings and communication in Paris, it was determined that the IFSW will host a global conference in Calgary (Canada) in July 2020. The decision was to dissolve the Tripartite Collaboration for the 2020 biannual conference. IASSW and ICSW supporting the proposal submitted by Rimini for 2020, will bring back the decision to their respective Board of Directors for final determination of the location of their 2020 conference.
Any decision relative to the 2020 conferences will not affect any future collaboration between the three organisations.
