CIF hosts a conference every other year with a theme, related to some important and topical social work practice. It is also an event to celebrate each other and to highlight new ideas in supporting individuals and communities around the world.
These conferences generally provide 2 days of lectures, workshops, and site visits to local NGOs and social work agencies. The rest of the time is shared with reuniting with alumni from the various CIF/CIP programs as well as visiting a cultural site or engaging in a cultural activity.
Conferences last generally a week. Usually, there are offers for a post-tour in the hosting country.
The next conference will be held in India in 2025.
Anyone is welcomed to attend a conference. Information about registering for an upcoming conference will be on this website.
