This is the IASSW version of the Global Social Work Statement of Ethical Principles which was unanimously adopted at the General Assembly of IASSW on 5th July 2018 in Dublin, Ireland.
The IASSW Ethics Taskforce thanks our colleagues for their dedicated and considered feedback on the earlier draft of the Statement. Developing a statement of global ethics is extremely complex and we appreciate that there might be some national and/or regional contextual realities that are not reflected. We, therefore, encourage national and/or regional amplifications that are in accordance with the spirit and intent of this Statement. We intend that the document be a dynamic and evolving one, and we would appreciate your feedback upon application of the principles in research, education and practice.
Please send your responses to Prof. Vishanthie Sewpaul, Chair of the IASSW Ethics Taskforce. E-mail: SewpaulV@ukzn.ac.za
