Statement of Alexandra Mustafá vision for the IASSW

While affiliated to IASSW / AIETS, I propose my application to the. Members of the Board of Directors, considering that the World Social Service is facing a huge challenge: the intensification of structural inequality from an ideological performance by a right-wing international that aims to control the masses, intensify its rule and the process of exploitation of all the peoples of the world. Considering that this entity proposes to the Social Worker, the work with the people and with the social structures, in the sense of attending to their needs and the potentialization of their capacities, and the ideological performance of this “Right Internationalization” any initiative in the direction of personal and collective development, we believe that Social Service is a proactive attitude to promote a global articulation of the AS and an increasingly advanced training and able to identify the foundations of the modus operandi of these actors and to investigate, in its minutiae, all its consequences that has been slaughtering countries such as Brazil and the world, with a discourse and a practice that, clearly, attack our ethical principles, especially that of social justice and the autonomy of peoples. Consequently, we feel the need to update our theoretical and practical bases and understand that IASSW, because it occupies a privileged place in the definition of guidelines for vocational training around the world, can promote a link between social service schools and between the social workers, in the sense of proposing theoretical and practical alternatives to the confrontation of structural inequality and ideology. Our perspective is to contribute  a practice of popular scholarship, capable of offering knowledge on history that allows to identify the process of construction and maintenance of the domain and the exploitation, to be developed with the users, in the communities, as in the institutions, to disassemble the process of ideologization and alienation in progress, through participation in world conferences, meetings national and international, and contact with schools and social workers and representative entities, especially in Brazil, by encouraging a mass membership campaign to Iassw and creating conditions for action with international organizations such as the UN, and human rights organizations. These conditions are intended to be created through the intensification of international relations, through already consolidated exchanges like the one we have developed between Brazil and Italy, which has been consolidating a practice of popular erudition.
